These rains would continue for the next two to three days.
Landslide is a possibility in pockets of Uttarakhand especially in the eastern parts like Nainital, Almora, and Chamoli. With rains in sight, the day temperature will decrease whereas in the presence of clouding, and rainfall activities no significant change will be seen in the night temperatures.
