At present, a fresh Western Disturbance is affecting the hills of Northern India. Under the effect of this system, fresh rains and snow are continuing over the hills for the last two days now.
As per the forecast, the rain activities will further pick up pace now. Already snowfall activities took place in the upper reaches of Jammu and Kashmir as well as Himachal Pradesh yesterday evening. Fairly widespread rains are forecast for the Western Himalayas today. These rains are further expected to continue for the coming 24 hours as well.
By March 1, the intensity of rain and snow will start reducing over Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh and parts of Himachal Pradesh. However, rains will continue over eastern parts of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand on March 1 as well.
As a matter of fact, we do not expect any heavy snowfall during this time. However, one or two intense spells of rains are expected. Isolated hailstorm activities are also possible over lower regions. So, this spell will not bring any major disruption to the normal day to day life.
We expect the entire hilly region to go dry once again by the evening of March 1. Maximum temperatures will start rising once again.
