The hills of North India including Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand are going to witness a fresh spell of rain and snow. The first active Western Disturbance (WD) of February is expected to approach the Western Himalayas anytime soon. As a result, scattered rain and snow may commence in parts of Jammu and Kashmir by today evening.

These weather activities are expected to gradually cover parts of Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh. The intensity may peak on February 12 and a few heavy spells cannot be ruled out. In fact, heavy snow in some parts of Jammu and Kashmir may lead to blockage of major highways leading to traffic disruption. The intensity, however, would be comparatively less in parts of Uttarakhand this time.

The system is also likely to extend its impact up to the northern plains in the form of light rain over North Punjab and Haryana. Meanwhile, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh may witness an increase in the minimum temperature by 2-3 degrees Celsius.

As reiterated by Skymet, the intensity and frequency of Western Disturbances peak in January, while comparatively weaker systems approach the hills during the month of February. These feeble systems usually fail to give significant weather activities (barring a few occasions).

After the passage of this WD, meteorologists have predicted two more systems (not so strong). Another Western Disturbance is likely to approach the region around February 16. This may give more rain and snow Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
