Hills of North India 1

All the three hilly states of North India have remained before rain deficit before the arrival of Southwest Monsoon over the regions. However, Monsoon covered the hills of North India one stretch on June 28. Since then, the rainfall performance of all the three states improved considerably.

In fact, the last week has rained well, with widespread rains occurring over all the three hilly states of North India with some exceptionally heavy showers that triggered flash floods in some pockets of Jammu & Kashmir. These rains even caused travel disruption in the famous Amarnath and Kailash Mansarovar Yatras.

Let us take a look at the rainfall performance of all the three hill states of North India before the arrival of Monsoon and the change in the performance after the last week’s rains.


Hence, it is clear from the above table that the rainfall statistics of all the three states improved significantly after last week’s rains which were caused by the combination of the Axis of Monsoon trough and the presence of Western Disturbance both.

However, rains over all the three states reduced in the last 24 hours and mostly had been recorded in single digits, with only a few locations recording double-digit Monsoon rains.


In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Wednesday, Gulmarg recorded 16 mm of rains, Qazigund 16 mm, Jammu 10 mm, Uttarkashi 9 mm, Manali 7 mm, Dharamsala 4 mm, Bhuntar 4 mm, Kullu 4 mm, Mussorrie 3 mm, Dehradun 1 mm, and Shimla witnessed 0.8 mm of rains.

Despite the reduction in the rainfall activities over the hills of North India, the temperatures have continued to witness a significant dip. In fact, at most places, the day temperatures are a good 8 to 12 degrees below the normal levels. However, this difference was much more in Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh in contrast with Uttarakhand.

As of now, Skymet Weather does not foresee any significant weather system over the region. Moreover, the Axis of Monsoon trough has also shifted southwards.

Hence, Skymet Weather does not anticipate any major Monsoon activity over all the three states of Hills of North India. For the next three-four days, the weather is likely to remain comfortable and mostly clear with chances of isolated rains only.

Hence, the hills of North India would enjoy a clear and comfortable weather during the weekend. Thus, peoples planning to tour the hills of North India can pack their bags and visit the hills.
