As per the reports, several areas in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Jammu and Kashmir witnessed scattered light to moderate rain with few heavy spells in the past days. Although, the weather has become comfortable and pleasant.
These rains can be attributed to the trough which is extending from South Jammu and Kashmir to Assam across Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
Moreover, the intensity of rains will be more Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand than Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.
Vaishno Devi is also expected to record scattered rainfall activity. Therefore, pilgrims are suggested to avoid going to the shrine during the next few days.
These pre-Monsoon showers are likely to continue for another 48 hours. Thus, the plain regions would witness comfortable day and pleasant nights. While the day across the hill stations would be pleasant and nights will be cool.
