The hills of North India i.e. Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been experiencing widespread rain and snow since the last 24 hours. In fact, few higher reaches of these states also witnessed heavy snowfall activity.
In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Banihal recorded 31 mm of rain, followed by Gulmarg 19 mm, Pahalgam 18 mm, Qazigund 14 mm, Jammu 11 mm, Dharamshala 28 mm, Manali 42 mm, Shimla 18 mm, Dehradun 10 mm, Mussoorie 11 mm and Nainital 19 mm.
These rains have been attributed to the Western Disturbance which currently lies over North Pakistan and adjoining areas of Jammu and Kashmir. it has also induced a cyclonic circulation over Northwest Rajasthan and adjoining parts of Punjab and Haryana.
Now due to the presence of the above weather systems, during the next 24 hours also, we expect light to moderate rain and snow with few heavy spells to occur over all the three hilly stations of North India.
Rain and snow are likely to continue over the northern hills for another 48 hours. Thereafter there will a short break on March 5. But due to quick succession of another Western Disturbance, the higher reaches of the Western Himalayas will continue to receive rain and snow.
Further, on March 6, the Western Disturbance will be affecting over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. However, during this period intensity of weather activities will not be significant.
