Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand to continue with rain and snow

January 13, 2019 10:52 AM |


The hills of North India i.e. Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand received light to moderate rain and snowfall activity during the last 24 hours. These weather activities occurred in wake of the Western Disturbance over the higher latitudes and its included cyclonic circulation over Northwest Rajasthan and adjoining West Haryana.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Saturday, Manali recorded 29 mm of rain, followed by Pahalgam 23 mm, Banihal 13.8 mm, Batote 20.4 mm, Bhaderwah 10 mm, Gulmarg 21.6 mm, Kullu 15mm, Katra 16 mm, Srinagar 4.8 mm, Dharamshala 7 mm, Chamba 3 mm, Shimla 3.5 mm, Solan 4 mm and Mussoorie 1 mm.

Now as both the above-mentioned weather systems are moving away east/northeastwards. During the next 18 to 24 hours, sky conditions are expected to remain overcast to cloudy over all the three hilly states i.e. Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. In fact, spells of rain and snow will also continue during this period.

Thereafter, in wake of these weather systems, weather conditions will be seen improving as clouds will decrease. Moreover, rain and snow will also cease. However, the higher reaches of these states will still continue to witness spell of rain and snow over isolated pockets.

No significant change will be seen in the temperatures during the next 18 hours. Thereafter, day temperatures will start increasing and night temperatures will decline.

Furthermore, a fresh Western Disturbance is expected to approach the Western Himalayas around January 15 and 16. During that time, we expect light rain and snow to occur over parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
