Winter season is the main attraction for hills, when wintry chill beautifies nature and gives tourists an eye soothing pleasure.

Normally, weather activities over the hills governs and influences weather activities over the plains of the country. Any seasonal variation taking place over the hills drives climatic variation over the other parts of the country.

There are mainly three hilly states in India i.e. Jammu and Kashmir which experiences maximum weather activities followed by Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakahnd.

Usually, rain activities over the hills commence in October and last till March, while during December to February, these activities remain at peak.

This year, rain activities had started over hills around October 9. Intensity of these rains was mild over Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, while the state of Jammu and Kashmir had performed very well with 38% excess rainfall. On the other hand, Uttarakhand had remained deficient by 66%, followed by Himachal Pradesh by 22%.

In case of Uttarakhand, this rain deficiency was observed even in 2017 where the state remained almost deficient with only little rain activities.

At present, no significant weather system is expected to form in the next 10 days. There would be few feeble systems that would form around December 4-5 and later around December 8-9. These systems would affect higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir, while the other parts would remain unaffected.

Further, after December 13, a fresh system is likely to form that would cause widespread rains over the hills which will consequently drive the weather of plains too.

As of now, in the absence of any significant weather system, comfortable and pleasant conditions are prevailing over hills and no harsh activity in the coming days can be foreseen.

Minimums are below normal such as minimums over Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir are around -3℃, whereas Manali in Himachal Pradesh is experiencing 0℃,while night temperatures in Nainital in Uttarakhand is settling around 6℃.

Minimums over parts of Uttarakhand are expected to reach 0℃ around Christmas or New year. That will be the time, when one after the other Western Disturbances will make a move, thereby resulting in winters taking a solid grip.

Till then, pleasant weather will continue over the hills but for witnessing good amount of snowfall, tourists need to wait till Christmas or New year.
