During the next 24 hours, light scattered rain associated with isolated snowfall may occur over parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan and Muzaffarabad. Isolated pockets of Ladakh may receive light rain. Scattered light to moderate rain and thundershower with isolated snowfall may occur over Himachal Pradesh. Isolated rain activities are expected over Sikkim and Assam.
Scattered rain activities are expected over North West and Central India from March 17th.
Following a wet weekend that saw many areas across Northeast India receive heavy showers and thunderstorms, parts of this region are expected to continue witnessing wet conditions for the next 3-4 days.
According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), fairly widespread rainfall and/or snowfall activity is likely to drench the state of Arunachal Pradesh over the next two days, and decrease thereafter. Furthermore, isolated thundershowers are on the cards for Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya from Tuesday to Friday, March 16-19.
These conditions will be created by a trough in the westerlies and a cyclonic circulation, which are expected to persist over the region over the course of this forecast period, as per The Weather Channel’s met team.
In view of these predictions, the IMD has issued a yellow watch (‘be aware’ of the local weather situation) over the three aforementioned states, along with the neighbouring states of Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura on Tuesday, March 16. No alerts have been placed over the region for the subsequent two days, although there remains a possibility of the advisory level getting updated by late Tuesday.
Meanwhile, similar wet conditions were recorded over the Northeast during this recently-concluded weekend, when a passing western disturbance interacted with the easterly winds blowing in from the Bay of Bengal, and created confluence that caused instability over the region.
These meteorological conditions then led to widespread rains and thunderstorms over the northeastern states, particularly over Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Assam and Meghalaya.
