Heavy snow poses avalanche threat in Kashmir, Himachal, and Uttarakhand today

March 6, 2020 5:00 PM |

Western Himalayas

The hilly states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh have been experiencing moderate rain and thundershowers along with scattered snowfall activities.

The weather activities have increased more during the last 24 hours. And, as correctly predicted by Skymet Weather, intense weather activities were observed in parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Ladakh.

As per the weather models at Skymet, an active Western Disturbance is persisting over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir. Also, an induced cyclonic circulation is over northwest Rajasthan and adjoining Punjab and Haryana.

In the wake of the above-mentioned weather system, the intensity is likely to increase more today in the hilly states as fairly widespread rain and snowfall at a few places is a forecast as per Skymet Weather.

Heavy snow may even lead to avalanches in the prone areas. Landslides, mudslides and road blockage due to fresh snow accumulation cannot be ruled out. Thus, extra precautions must be taken.

These weather activities are expected to continue until the afternoon of March 7. At the same time, Uttrakhand may also observe scattered rainfall activities.

Although we do not expect heavy to very heavy rainfall in the hilly states, the activities will be more over the plains of North India.

On March 8, the Western Disturbance will turn feeble and it will continue to move away in the eastwards direction further leading to clear weather conditions.
