Heavy rain, snow in Kashmir, Himachal and Uttarakhand, avalanche alert issued

March 11, 2019 8:45 AM |

Back to back Western Disturbances are expected to approach the Western Himalayas. One out of these two will affect the region today in terms of weather activity.

Scattered rain and snow is expected over many parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh as well as Uttarakhand.

One or two heavy spells are also expected in the upper reaches of Jammu-Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh, which will lead to a significant drop in temperatures. Heavy snowfall may also cause blockage of Jammu-Srinagar highway.

Famous tourist places like Pahalgam, Jammu, Shimla, Dharamshala, Kullu and Kedarnath will witness heavy rain and snow.

We expect these activities to continue until tomorrow morning. By afternoon, the weather will start clearing.

After a short break of 24 to 36 hours, another Western Disturbance, much stronger in nature will approach the northern hills. This system will resume rain and snowfall activities over all the three hilly states. Since this system is expected to stay for a longer period, the intensity of rain and snow will also increase and we expect fairly widespread precipitation in the region.

During this period, chances of avalanche, landslides and road blockages cannot be ruled out. Therefore, tourists are advised not to head to the hills for at least a couple of days.

These activities will continue until the morning of March 15. By afternoon of the same day, rain and snow will start receding from Jammu-Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. However, the upper reaches of Uttarakhand may continue to receive scattered rain and snow.

March 16 onward, as the Western Disturbance moves away eastwards, the weather will become completely dry over Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
