Snow in Himachal

Hills of North India are gearing up for another spell of rain and snow during the next 48 hours. According to Skymet Weather, a fresh Western Disturbance is over North Afghanistan and adjoining Pakistan. With this, we expect light rain and snow to commence over Jammu and Kashmir today only.

By tomorrow, the effecting Western Disturbance would move eastward over Jammu and Kashmir. As a result, there would be increase in the rain intensity as well as spread over Jammu and Kashmir as well as cover parts of Himachal Pradesh. Snowfall of moderate intensity is expected over both the states, with few pockets recording few heavy spells.

To be precise on November 14 and 15, we can expect fairly widespread moderate to heavy snowfall over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and over few upper reaches of Uttarakhand. Isolated hail storm is also expected over parts of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

Threat of landslide and mudslide also looms large over the region. These weather activities may even interrupt vehicular movement and might lead to closure of highways.

The effecting Western Disturbance is likely to move away from the region by November 16 and thus, rain and snow activities would also recede.

As per weathermen, as we progress further in the season, both the intensity and frequency of Western Disturbances to increase. Thus, on and off snowfall activities would continue over Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and upper reaches of Uttarakhand now onward.

Also, Winter season in North India is governed by the passage of Western Disturbances. Effect of these weather activities over the hills would also be felt over the plains of Northwest India in terms of drop in temperatures.

By November 16, Western Disturbance would move away, paving way for cold northwesterly winds blowing straight from the snow capped Himalayas. These icy winds would be responsible for dipping the temperatures all across the plains of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and parts of Rajasthan by two to three degrees. Isolated pockets might even see mercury plunging by four degrees as well.
