Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand to see rain, snow December 9 onward

December 6, 2018 1:00 PM |


A feeble Western Disturbance has approached the state of Jammu and Kashmir recently.

The Western Disturbance as an upper air system is moving away across Eastern Jammu and Kashmir and adjoining Himachal Pradesh. With this, we expect isolated rain activities over East Jammu and Kashmir, eastern parts of Himachal Pradesh and north of Uttarakhand during the next 24 to 48 hours. Although, any moderate or heavy rain and snowfall activity is ruled out as of now.

Tomorrow, the night temperatures are expected to drop by 2°C-3°C over most parts of the states. Day will be mostly clear over Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Southern parts of Jammu and Kashmir. Hills will observe a cool day with light cool winds and places like Dehradun, Mussoorie, Shimla and Kuallu will observe a mostly sunny day and pleasant conditions.

On and off feeble Western Disturbance is expected to approach Western Himalayas in the coming days as well. However, an active Western Disturbance is expected to reach Jammu and Kashmir around December 9 which may give light to moderate rain and snow at many places over both the states of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. Also, some isolated pockets of Uttarakhand are likely to receive rains between December 9 and 11.

During this time, we do not expect any extremely heavy snowfall activity which may affect day to day life of the locals. However, the rain and snow would trigger landslides and mudslides at a few places.

Therefore, we can say it is safe to travel over hills for the next 3 to 4 days. Precaution must be taken between December 9 and 11 as chances of weather activity such as rain and snow will increase during this time.

After the passage of Western Disturbance, we expect that the temperatures over Northwest plains will fall by 2 to 3-degree Celsius due to the commencement of cold winds form North (Northerly-Northwesterly winds), blowing over the snow-clad mountains.
