Rains to continue in Kashmir and Himachal, situation to remain grim in Uttarakhand for next 24 hrs

August 19, 2019 1:59 PM |

Rain in Northern Hills

Due to the northward shifting of the axis of Monsoon Trough and the presence of a Low-Pressure Area over North Haryana and adjoining Punjab, heavy rains have lashed Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. While rains continued with light to moderate intensity only in Jammu and Kashmir during the last 24 hours.

Now, the Low-Pressure Area has weakened and the axis of Monsoon Trough is also shifting to South, therefore a significant decrease in the rainfall activities is expected in Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh from tomorrow. However, these states will experience good rain and thundershower activities today.

The weather will become almost dry August 20 onward. Gradually, the floodwaters will recede and the situation will also ease out. As rains will continue with the reduced intensity only for the next three days, we do not expect any cloudburst or flash floods taking place.

Uttarakhand, on the contrary, will continue to experience rains with an increased intensity only and still stand a chance to experience cloudbursts and flash floods. At present, it is extremely risky to travel towards the state and thus tourists are advised to re-consider their plans or better to postpone them for now. The situation will remain grim here for at least next 24 hours.

The rainfall activities will once again be at peak on August 24. During that time, isolated moderate to heavy spells will lash the region.
