One last spell of rain and snow ahead for northern hills before March end

March 23, 2019 1:40 PM |


The series of Western Disturbances continues to affect Western Himalayas without fail even after the Winter season has gone by officially. The intensity of these WDs has only increased since January 1 and will still continue affecting the region until the end of March. We are now in the third week of March and still the Western Disturbances are affecting the Western Himalayas. Also, their effect is being observed in Northwest Plains in terms of scattered rains and thundershower activity.

Whereas fairly widespread rain and thundershower continues over Western Himalayas particularly over the states of Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and in isolated places over Uttarakhand leading to extended Winter over Northwest and Central parts of the country. Now a fresh Western Disturbance is likely to approach by tomorrow or today night.

This system will induce scattered rains by today evening over Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh which will continue on March 24 or 25. During these two days, we also expect light to moderate snow over Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and isolated activities over the lower state of Uttarakhand.

By evening of March 25, the Western Disturbance will start moving away.

This might be the last Western Disturbance affecting the hills for this month. Another Western Disturbance is expected only in the month of April.

After the passage of this system, northwesterly winds blowing over the region will take the lead in deciding and dipping the temperatures over the northern parts of Punjab and Haryana. The effect however will remain minimal as now Summers will be here finally, and normal temperatures will begin to rise.
