The region will get a short break of about three days from the rainy spell, after which another Western Disturbance is likely to affect the region by March 3.

Western Disturbances become frequent during winters and are responsible for affecting the weather in the region to a large extent. These systems after approaching the region usually stay for 1-2 days and give short spells of rain. The system is called Western Disturbance due to its movement from west to east.
