At present, a feeble Western Disturbance is affecting Jammu and Kashmir. This may give scattered light to moderate thundershower activities over Jammu and Kashmir until today evening. Thereafter, the weather will become dry.
Another fresh Western Disturbance is likely to affect Jammu and Kashmir on April 16. This upcoming Western Disturbance is being speculated to be much stronger than the present one. On April 16 and 17 we expect fairly widespread rain and thundershower activities over the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh as well as at many places over Uttarakhand. During this time, we also expect some snowfall activities over the upper reaches of the Himalayas.
The effect of this Western Disturbance will be observed back at the Northern Plains of the country i.e. Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, many parts of Rajasthan as well as over Madhya Pradesh.
After April 17, the weather activities will start reducing and the Western Disturbance will move away. This year we are witnessing active Western Disturbances in the month of April also which is not a usual sight. Usually by the month of March Western Disturbances start travelling in the upper latitudes and their strength start weakening over the Indian subcontinent.
