Along with this, easterly winds are also feeding moisture over the region, which will further enhance rains. A feeble Western Disturbance is also over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir, which will further aid in the upcoming rains.

Moderate showers will continue over southern parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh as well as Uttarakhand. Katra, in particular may receive moderate to heavy showers tomorrow. Thereafter, rainfall intensity will see a reduction, however, light rains will continue to be seen over Katra.
