Heavy rainfall to hit J&K and Himachal Pradesh: IMD

Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh are likely to meet rainfall as the Western Disturbances are persisting from Afghanistan due to a cyclonic circulation said the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).

“The Western Disturbance as a cyclonic circulation over Afghanistan and neighborhood extending between 3.1 and 4.5 km above mean sea level persists. The associated trough in mid & upper tropospheric westerlies with its axis at 5.8 km above mean sea level roughly along Long. 62°E to the north of Lat. 20°N also persists”.

Under its influence, fairly widespread to widespread rain/snow is likely to fall over Jammu and Kashmir and scattered to fairly widespread rain/snow over Himachal Pradesh along with isolated heavy precipitation during the next 24 hours,” predicted the IMD in its All India Weather Warning Bulletin today.

In Delhi, the shallow fog will engulf the region throughout the day with the minimum and maximum temperatures hovering around 15 degrees Celsius and 27 degrees Celsius. The relative humidity in the area would be around 65 percent.
