Solan, Shimla, Dehradun and Haridwar to witness moderate rains for the next 24 to 48 hrs

Monsoon Rains in Hills of North

All the hilly states of Western Himalayas are still observing rainfall deficiency despite some rains in the last few days. Uttarakhand is rain deficit by 37% followed by Himachal Pradesh 36% and Jammu and Kashmir 17%.

Although Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been receiving good rains for the last four to five days, they have not proved enough in pulling down the deficiency levels.

As this seasonal Trough will remain confined to the foothills, the southern districts of both the states are likely to receive heavy rains. While the northern districts might see light rains with one or two moderate spells.

Due to these torrential rains, thirteen people, including Army personnel, were killed after a multi-storey building collapsed in Himachal Pradesh's Solan, around 45 km from capital Shimla, on Sunday. Also, the highway stretch in Solan has also been affected by mudslides.

Massive mudslides have also hit the Chandigarh-Shimla national highway after heavy overnight rain yesterday, leading to traffic jams.

Meanwhile, rain in Jammu and Kashmir is likely to remain light. With a gradual shift of seasonal Trough towards South, the rainfall activities are expected to reduce over the states. Whereas during the next 24 to 48 hours, moderate rains might continue over the southern districts of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Also, a fresh Western Disturbance that is over North Afghanistan and adjoining Pakistan might give scattered light rains over Jammu and Kashmir, but these rains won’t be enough in altering the rain deficiency scenario.
