The month of January is just going to end and it seems like the Western Disturbance is in no mood to spare the northern hills anytime soon. So if you are planning a trip to the hills during this week, we advise you to reconsider your plans, as another heavy rain and snow spell is going to hit the hilly region within next 24 hours.

At present, a fresh Western Disturbance is over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir. The system is soon going to reach the Western Himalayas. This time, it has also induced a Cyclonic Circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining Rajasthan, indicating rain in the northern plains.

According to our meteorologists, a fresh spell of rain and snow may commence in parts of Jammu and Kashmir as well as Ladakh by today afternoon. As time progresses, these activities are expected to spread up to parts of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand as well.

Moderate to heavy rain and snow may drench almost all the famous tourist destinations right from Srinagar, Pahalgam, Kullu, Manali, Shimla to Kedarnath, Badrinath, Nainital until January 28.

Considering heavy snowfall in some parts, chances of landslides, mudslides as well as avalanches in the prone areas cannot be ruled out. Hence, tourists are advised to take all the necessary precautions.

From January 29, due to the eastward movement of the weather system, the weather activities are expected to taper from the region. However, rain and snow may continue with good intensity in parts of Uttarakhand for some more time.
