In Uttarakhand, people are horrified by the disaster after the glacier burst on 7th February 2021. In such a situation, any news of the worsening of the weather can increase their trouble further. Due to the glacier bursting, the water flow in the Dhauliganga river suddenly became very fast, due to which there is news of the loss of life and property in all the areas that come in its path.

A western disturbance near Jammu and Kashmir in North India is about to knock. Due to the effect of this system, rain activity will start at some places in Gilgit Baltistan from tonight. Rain and snowfall are expected to increase over the mountains of North India from 9 February. Light and moderate rainfall associated with light snowfall are expected over parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, and Ladakh.

There is a possibility of light rain or snow at some places in northern areas of Himachal Pradesh tomorrow. As a matter of relief, this weather system will not have any major effect over Uttarakhand. On February 10, there may be light thunderstorms at some places in north-eastern parts of Uttarakhand including Kedarnath, Badrinath, Chamoli, Uttarkashi, Rudraprayag. The ensuing western disturbance is weak, so there is no need to be afraid.

The disaster in Uttarakhand on February 7, 2021, was not directly related to the weather disaster but was indirectly related to climate change. This is the reason that the news of any kind of seasonal stir at this time may disturb the people of Uttarakhand.

Due to widespread snowfall in the month of January and good snowfall in early February, the pressure on the glaciers is high and now the temperature is going to increase. In such a situation, such incidents cannot be completely denied. In such a situation, people not only need to be vigilant in the areas around the rivers, but the relief agencies should also be vigilant so that rescue operations can be started immediately if needed.
