Travelling To Himachal, Uttrakhand For Long Weekend? Be Prepared For Heavy Rains

All regions of India have experienced heavy rainfall activity this week due to the monsoon being in an active phase and various low-pressure systems influencing the weather. But some regions are about to experience heavier rainfall in the coming days. This long weekend if you have planned to visit Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh or Rajasthan, be prepared for some heaving pouring as per the weather updates. 

Monsoon In India In An Active Phase

Monsoon in August has been in an active phase and influenced by various low-pressure systems. Additionally included in this mix are portions of North and Northwest India. According to the most recent forecasts, they should expect heavy downpours for the rest of the week. The following states and territories are expected to have scattered to broadly distributed showers, along with a few isolated heavy falls, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).  The states like Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan are the ones to experience heavy rainfall. Furthermore, West Rajasthan is anticipated to have scattered very heavy rainfall (115.5 mm–204 mm) on Friday. In light of this, this subdivision will be put on an orange alert for the day, with the warning advising citizens to “be prepared” for the rough weather.

Wet Weather Over The Northern Hemisphere

The IMD saw sporadic rainfall and thunderstorms in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, West Rajasthan, and East Uttar Pradesh, which also brought about wet weather over the northern hemisphere. Multiple meteorological systems, including a low-pressure area over Madhya Pradesh, a well-detailed low-pressure area over Saurashtra and the nearby Northeast Arabian Sea, the active monsoon trough passing through the centres of both of these lows, and finally an east-west shear zone spanning Central India, will interact to cause this wet spell. However, the impending spell will cool the northwest plains, according to The Weather Channel’s met team, which forecasts that this week’s maximum temperatures will be much below average.
