Western Disturbance Rains

The Southwest Monsoon has withdrawn from our country and it was a quick and abrupt one. The Western Disturbances are the only weather systems that are responsible for weather activities over North India during winters. The weather systems could be in various forms like a Cyclonic Circulation and a well-marked system. Some of the systems give only clouding and some only rain.

The intensity of the systems can be in all forms from mild to moderate and these weather systems that are the Western Disturbances are solely responsible for the snowfall as well over the hills of North India.

The withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon commenced on October 9 and after the withdrawal we saw the first active Western Disturbance yesterday over the North Pakistan and adjoining areas. It’s induced Cyclonic Circulation was over Central Pakistan and adjoining areas.

Now this Western disturbance has moved further and is over Jammu and Kashmir and adjoining areas while the induced Circulation can be seen over Central Pakistan and West Rajasthan. Both these systems that are the Western Disturbance and Cyclonic Circulation both move in tandem wherein the Western Disturbance moves in the upper part and Cyclonic Circulation moves in the lower part.

The new West Disturbance has already given widespread rain activity which even traveled up to the foothills and plains. The rain activities were mainly seen over Jammu and Kashmir followed by Himachal Pradesh, while isolated spells were seen over Uttarakhand.

Like in the past 24 hours, Srinagar, Banihal, Qazigund, and Jammu recorded 13 mm, 17 mm, 15 mm and 19 mm of rain respectively. Whereas Dharamshala and Manali recorded 4 mm and 11 mm of rain respectively with 2 mm of rain being witnessed in Amritsar.

Today as well the rain activities are expected to extend further over the plains of North India inclusive of Delhi and NCR. Thus, North Rajasthan parts of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and NCR are very likely to witness light rainfall activities while hills of North India will see moderate showers.

By tomorrow, the rains will start easing out and will be confined to the hills only and on October 20 most probably it will vacate from the hills as well.

These rains will not impact the meteorological parameters in terms of humidity and temperature. However, these rains will for sure restrict the rising temperature. With this, the upper reaches of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh may even see snowfall activities.
