Rain in Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand to continue for 48 hours, to recede thereafter

May 16, 2019 4:31 PM |

Hills of North India

Successive Western Disturbances have given fairly widespread rainfall activities over the hills of North India. Upper reaches have also seen isolated snowfall activities for the past one week or so.

During the last 24 hours also, Dharamsala recorded 38 mm of rains, Una 10 mm, Bhuntar 5 mm, Manali 5 mm, and Shimla 5 mm.

Now, a fresh Western Disturbance is seen over North Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir. Due to which, rain and thundershower activities will once again increase over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh as well as Uttarakhand during the next 48 hours, i.e. until May 18.

Thereafter, the weather system will move away resulting in dry weather conditions over most areas of the hilly states of North India. Temperatures, at present are settling below the normal levels but will start to rise after 48 hours as rains recede from these states.

There will be feeble Western Disturbances making appearances, but the intensity will not be high and only isolated light rains will be seen during that time. The next Western Disturbance will be seen around May 21 and will continue to affect these states up to May 23.

Therefore, on and off Western Disturbances will continue throughout the month of May, but the intensity will decrease in comparison to the present. Weather in the hills of North India will not go dry completely and weather will be comfortable.
