Western disturbance has approached Western Himalayas and will travel across the mountain states of North India over the next 3-4 days. Light rain in the lower hills and rain and snow in the mid and higher reaches, with elevation above 12,000’ is likely. Spread and intensity of weather activity will be in the descending order from Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand.
Western disturbance is marked more significantly as upper air system. It is likely to pair up with the pre existing cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan and neighbourhood. The impact will be seen more in the hills and limited in the plains. Rain and snow is likely over Srinagar, Patnitop, Pahalgam, Gulmarg, Manali, Kullu, Dharamsala, Dalhousie and Shimla. Over Uttrakhand, Garhwal region will have more activity than the Kumaon area. The activity centers will include Pauri, Garhwal, Tehri, Uttarkashi and Rudraprayag. This also will include the tunnel rescue operations in the Uttarkashi region. Pithoragarh, Bageshwar, Champawat and Almora will receive light to moderate, scattered weather activity.
Weather activity will be rather mild, spread and intensity, on 28th Nov and 01st Dec. In between, moderate rain/snow in the mid and higher reaches and scattered rains are expected in the lower hills. Weather conditions will improve from 02nd December onward, across the northern mountains. Chill and freeze will follow in the wake of the system, affecting both, the hills and the plains of North India.
