The prevailing Western Disturbance is one of the first active Disturbances of the season that has resulted in good rain and snow over the hills and some rainfall over parts of plains of North India. Moreover, the system is yet to give more weather activity today as well as tomorrow before clearing out on January 14.

In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am yesterday, Gulmarg recorded 19 mm of rains, Qazigund 10 mm, Manali 17 mm, Dharamsala 3 mm, Bhuntar 2 mm, Pantnagar 1 mm, Ambala 0.5 mm, Chandigarh 0.4 mm, with traces of rains over Pathankot and adjoining areas of Punjab. This has broken the dry spell that had been over the plains since the last many days.

Moreover, snowfall was seen over Drass, Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Kupwara, Bhaderwah and adjoining areas. In fact, a landslide was reported over the higher reaches which caused the closure of Mughal Road and Srinagar-Leh highway as well.

The Western Disturbance is currently moving across the Western Himalayas and its induced Circulation is over Northwest rajasthan and adjoining areas. With this, we can expect rain and snow over the higher and mid reaches of the hills of North India to continue with other areas to see rains at least until tomorrow. Thereafter, we can expect clearance around January 14 wherein remnants may give some activity over the hills and completely clear out by January 15.

Talking about the plains, parts of Punjab as well as Haryana are likely to see some rains today and tomorrow. Along with this, light rain is also expected over Delhi also tonight as well as tomorrow morning.
