Updated on June 16 at 11:00 am: As predicted by Skymet Weather, rain continued to occur over the hilly states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Dharamsala recorded 22 mm of rain followed by Dehradun at 20 mm, Katra 20.2 mm, Srinagar 14 mm, Qazi Gund 16 mm, Mandi 11 mm and Manali 6 mm of rains. We anticipate rains to continue over the hilly regions of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand for another 24 hours.

Updated on June 15 at 6:00 pm: Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been witnessing scattered light to moderate rain with few heavy spells in the past days. With rains paving in, the weather has become comfortable during the day and pleasant during the night.


In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Dharamsala recorded heavy rain to the tune of 75.8 mm, followed by Dehradun at 52.7 mm, Sundernagar 49.4 mm, Pithoragarh 42.3 mm, Mussoorie 19.4 mm, Tehri 16.2 mm, Nainital 13.5 mm, and Shimla 3.9 mm of rains.

These rains can be attributed to the trough which is extending from South Jammu and Kashmir to Assam across Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. This system continues to persist over the region. Thus, light to moderate rain with few heavy spells would continue to occur over the hilly regions.

The intensity of rains would be more over Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand as compared to Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.

Places such as Shimla, Mussoorie, Dehradun, Nainital, Dharamsala, and Tehri would witness rains. In fact, Vaishno Devi is also expected to record scattered rainfall activity. Therefore, pilgrims should avoid going to the shrine during the next few days.

These pre-Monsoon showers are likely to continue for another 48 hours. Thus, the plain regions would witness comfortable day and pleasant nights. While the day across the hill stations would be pleasant and nights will be cool.
