Weather is running almost dry over the hills of Northern Himalayas for the past few days. After a Western Disturbance will approach the region anytime soon, we expect isolated light rains over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and in isolated pockets of Uttarakhand today.
Again, on March 21, we expect scattered light to moderate rains over these areas. Another intense Western Disturbance which will also be the third one in this month will arrive around March 24 over northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir.
On March 24, we expect rains and snow over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Ladakh and western districts of Himachal Pradesh. By the late night of March 24, we expect all the hilly regions to also start receiving rains and thundershower activities along with snowfall. We expect these rains and snowfall activities to continue until March 25.
Thereafter, by the late evening or late night of March 25, weather activities will start decreasing and the Western Disturbance will move away eastwards. Remnants of the Western Disturbance will continue to give isolated rains and snow over Western Himalayas on March 26 as well. During this rain episode, we expect maximum temperatures to prevail around 8 to 10 degrees. Northern plains will also be impacted by the same weather system. Thereafter, another strong Western Disturbance is expected around the end of March.
