On February 28 and 29, fairly widespread rain and snow lashed the Western Himalayas. These weather activities were seen on account of an active Western Disturbance. The remnants of this system have given light rain in Shimla, Dehradun and Tehri during the last 24 hours. And there are chances of light showers today as well.

After 24 hours, the rainfall activities would reduce, post which the weather may become dry. However, another active Western Disturbance is expected to approach by the evening of March 4. In the wake of this system, scattered rain may commence by the night of March 4 in Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh. The intensity is expected to increase on March 5 and remain at peak on March 6.

During this span, moderate snowfall with isolated heavy spells may lash Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

According to meteorologists, this is going to be the first heavy spell of rain and snow of March. There are also chances of landslides, mudslides as well as road blockages due to heavy snow. The possibility of avalanches in prone areas cannot be ruled out.

The effect of this weather system would also be felt across Indo-Gangetic plains in terms of moderate to heavy rain.

By the night of March 7, the weather activities will start subsiding as the Western Disturbance will start moving towards the east. However, the remnants of the system might continue to give light spells of rain on March 8 as well.

Amidst rain and snow, we expect day temperatures to drop significantly by 5-8 degrees Celsius.
