The hills of the North, i.e. Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been witnessing continuous spell of rain and snow since past few days. The reason for the same is the continuous passage of Western Disturbances after very short intervals.

At present, the Western Disturbance is over East Jammu and Kashmir which is likely to move away during next 24 hours. Post this, another fresh Western Disturbance which is currently over Afghanistan and adjoining Pakistan is likely to affect the upper reaches of Jammu region by January 15. It’s induced Cyclonic Circulation now lies over West Rajasthan and a low-level Circulation is over Delhi and adjoining West Uttar Pradesh.  Devotees travelling to Vaishno Devi this weekend would also have to battle extremely cold weather conditions.

In the coming 24 hours, moderate rain and snow is likely to continue at many places over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and some places of Uttarakhand. Similar conditions have been witnessed by the residents of these regions in the last 24 hours as well.

During the last 24 hours, Kupwara and Pahalgam in Jammu and Kashmir recorded 14.1 mm and 4.7 mm of rains, respectively. Gulmarg witnessed minimums around -6°C. Keylong in Himachal Pradesh also recorded minimums touching the mark of -10°C.

By January 13, rain intensity will start to reduce over Jammu and Kashmir as the north-westerlies will approach and stay for a short period. Thereafter, Himachal Pradesh will also start to witness reduced weather activity.

Weather will start to clear up January 14 onward wherein maximum temperatures will see a rise. Northerly winds will start to blow over the Northern Plains leading to drop in temperatures there, leading to dense to very dense fog in many parts of the plains.

This reduction will occur due to the movement of the Western Disturbance towards the East. On January 13, the state of Uttarakhand, however, will see an increase in the weather activities in terms of both rain and snowfall. With this, we can now expect some chilly days and nights ahead for the hills.
