Strong Western Disturbance foreseen paving way for good snowfall

Though, this year, one after other successive Western Disturbances approached the northern hills of the country. However, these Western Disturbances were not strong enough to give sufficient rains or snow over these regions until the later half of the November month.

In fact, two relatively active Western Disturbances also affected Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh between November 23 and November 26. These Western Disturbances have given scattered rains along with snow over both the states of Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. Hence this can be termed as first active weather system.

Due to this, season’s first snowfall has also occurred over Western Himalayas. However, as of now, weather is forecasted to be clear. Moreover, cold northerly/northwesterly winds have also started commencing over northern plains leading to drop in temperatures.

Two days thereafter, one more Western Disturbance is expected to approach Jammu & Kashmir which is scheduled to make an onset on November 29. Initially, the state is forecasted to be light and isolated in nature. However, the same is expected to increase between November 30 and December 1.

During this time as well, scattered rains and snow are a possibility over the northern hills. However, snowfall is likely to remain confined particularly over higher altitude of the hilly states. Hence, in a nutshell, it can be said that now Western Disturbance has started traveling in lower latitude and gradually their intensity is also expected to increase leading to good snowfall.

Furthermore, until and unless, the hilly states do not witness moderate to heavy snow, severe winter cannot be said to be marked over adjoining northern plains as well.
