December 16, 2023 12:50 PM |

A fresh western disturbance may bring much-needed rain and snow to the hills of Gilgit Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Jammu and Kashmir on December 16 and 17, and Himachal Pradesh on December 17. This will be a welcome respite for the region, replenishing water resources and painting the landscapes in a pristine white.

Gilgit Baltistan, Muzaffarabad and Jammu and Kashmir: These areas can expect light to moderate rain and snowfall on both December 16 and 17. Snowfall is likely to accumulate at higher altitudes, making for a picturesque winter wonderland.

Himachal Pradesh: Himachal Pradesh will also receive its share of the winter bounty, with rain and snowfall expected on December 17. The higher reaches of the state, like Rohtang Pass and Manali, are likely to see snow, perfect for skiing and other winter sports.

The plains of North India will experience a marginal rise in temperature on December 16, followed by a drop after three days as the cold air from the hills descends.

This fresh spell of rain and snow is sure to be a delight for tourists, especially those seeking to escape the bustling cities and immerse themselves in the beauty of the Himalayas. The snow-laden mountains, glistening under the winter sun, offer breathtaking views and ample opportunities for adventure activities.

While the snowfall is exciting, travellers to these areas should be aware of potential travel disruptions due to slippery roads and closures. It is essential to check weather forecasts and road conditions before embarking on any journey.

So, brace yourselves for a wintry wonderland in the hills! Pack your warm clothes, grab your hot cocoa, and get ready to witness the magic of nature unfold as the fresh western disturbance paints the mountains white.
