Rain in higher reaches of Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand but heat wave to continue in Jammu

June 2, 2019 12:07 PM |

With arrival of a fresh Western Disturbance, the higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand experienced light to moderate rain and thundershowers during the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the lower districts of these states continued to battle heat wave conditions.

On Saturday, many places of these three hilly states recorded day temperatures above normal by a couple of degrees. The maximum temperature recorded by Jammu was 44.5˚C, followed by Sundernagar 40˚C and Dehradun 38.5˚C.

At present, an east-west trough is running from southern parts of Punjab to Manipur across South Uttar Pradesh. The easterly winds are also affecting over the region along the foothills over to Punjab.

As the nature of these winds is moist, temperatures in  Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand will reduce by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius during the next 24 hours. However, uneasiness will increase due to these winds during the afternoon hours.

According to weathermen, a fresh feeble Western Disturbance is approaching the Western Himalayas and currently lies over parts of North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir.

Due to these weather conditions, scattered places of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh will witness rain and thundershower activities which will reduce the temperatures and bring relief from the ongoing heat wave in parts of the state.

But due to the presence of a cyclonic circulation over Punjab and adjoining parts of Pakistan, southern parts of Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in plains, would continue to witness high temperatures with heat wave in few pockets. These weather conditions will continue during the next 48 hours.
