The hills of North India have been experiencing moderate rains with one or two heavy spells since the last two days. Himachal Pradesh, in particular, has been observing heavy to very heavy rains, wherein Sundernagar has recorded 61 mm of rainfall, during the last 24 hours from 8.30 am on Monday.
According to Skymet, good rains are expected in all the three hilly states today i.e in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Moreover, chances of water-logging, mudslides, and landslides cannot be ruled out. The possibility of Jammu-Srinagar highway getting blocked may add to weather-related vagaries.
Since it is a vacation time, tourists are advised to take utmost precaution before heading into the hills at least for the next 24 to 48 hours.
These rains will be a result of a fresh Western Disturbance in the Western Himalayas. This strong system is moving eastwards.
By tomorrow, rains will start to taper in the region, with light to moderate rain continuing in some parts. The decreased rainfall activities will again make this hilly region ideal for tourists.
June 27 onward, a significant decrease in rainfall activity would be observed over the Western Himalayas. However, isolated rain would be a sight at one or two places. Most places will observe partly cloudy sky, with bright sunshine.
After much anticipation, Southwest Monsoon 2019 finally reached Uttarakhand, yesterday. With this, rainfall activities have increased over here. The Northern Limit of Monsoon is passing through Mukteshwar in Uttarakhand and many places in the state are expected to witness good rains for the next two days.
