Heavy to very heavy rainfall forecast at isolated places in some districts
The State meteorological centre has forecast widespread rain/thundershower activities over Uttarakhand from July 10 to 13. According to the centre, current meteorological analysis and numerical weather prediction models indicate that the monsoon trough is likely to shift close to foothills of Himalayas from July 9 onwards and remain there till July 13. The strong south-westerly winds from the Arabian sea in low levels are also likely to prevail over plains of north-west India during the period and cause moisture accumulation along the foothills of the Himalaya. Under its influence monsoon is likely to be active and widespread rain/thundershower activities are likely over Uttarakhand from July 10 to 13.
Heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely at isolated places in various districts during this period. Due to significant rain/thundershower activity in Uttarakhand during the said period, the meteorological centre has stated that districts where inclement weather is forecast are likely to experience landslide at isolated places in vulnerable areas, road blockage, overflow of rivulets and streams in mountains and water logging in low lying areas in plains especially from July 11 to 13. People are advised to be cautious and take necessary precautionary measures. The State government authorities should also take necessary action, the centre has advised.
