Snowfall in Western Himalayas from Monday, isolated rain in northern plains


The Western Himalayan region, consisting of areas of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, is likely to receive light to moderate rain with snowfall from Monday to March 14, as predicted by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its latest forecast.

The adjoining northern plains are also expected to experience isolated rain, with it being most likely on March 13, the weather department said.

A fresh Western Disturbance is set to affect North-West India from March 12, and this could be marked by rain and snowfall in many areas, including parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, as noted in the IMD forecast.

The department also warns of possible thunderstorms and lightning strikes, which may occur as a repercussion of such weather patterns.

Meanwhile, scattered rain will be experienced in regions like Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan from March 12.

Also, isolated rainfall is predicted for certain areas, like Odisha, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, along with several North-Eastern states, the agency added.

For the Southern region, the Meteorological Department said that areas like Rayalaseema and Tamil Nadu may witness extreme weather conditions characterised by high day temperatures for the next few consecutive days. Hence, these areas will have a hot and humid weather front, raising the overall temperature norms significantly.
