Peak activity is expected for the mountains on 13th and 14thApril.  Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand will have the intensity varying and sliding, in that sequence.  Hailstorm may accompany the stormy weather conditions over the mountains, more so for Himachal Pradesh on 14thApril.

Spread of weather activity will cover large parts of plains over Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi region.  Some parts of West and Southwest Uttar Pradesh and North Madhya Pradesh will witness scattered thunderstorms between 13th & 15th April.  Loud peals of thunder and strong flashy lightening strikes are likely over Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.
