A fresh Western Disturbance is likely to approach the northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir as an upper air system. Our experts have to say that the system is not that significant and may last for a short period. In the past 24 hours, the Western Disturbance which has moved eastward of Jammu and Kashmir gave scattered rains over Himachal Pradesh, isolated over Jammu and Kashmir and widespread activity over Uttarakhand. The state of Uttarakhand witnessed moderate to heavy rains.
In the past 24 hours that is from 0830 hours IST of yesterday to 0830 hours IST of today, significant rains have been recorded over Tiuni to the tune of 71 mm, Munsyari 38 mm, Dehradun 24 mm, and Joshimath 20 mm.
In wake of fresh Western Disturbance, rainfall activities might increase marginally over Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh while Uttarakhand will continue with light to moderate rains with isolated heavy spells.
Landslide and mudslide conditions will continue at many parts of Uttarakhand. The extreme southern parts of Himachal Pradesh also may receive moderate spells. Places like Dharamshala, Una, Nahan, Shimla, Dehradun, Uttarakashi, Nainital, Pantnagar, and Tehri are likely to witness moderate spells with isolated heavy spells for the next 48 hours. Thereafter, rain activities will slow down.
Nestled among the serene heights of the great Himalayas are four pilgrim-destinations namely Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath, collectively known as Char Dham. We would also like to extend cautions for people who are on their way to the Chardham Yatra.
