Western Disturbance O-2 gave only light rain in North India !!!

WD O-2 gave only light rain in the western Himalayan region except isolated moderate to heavy bursts in Uttarakhand. It was expected that O-2 can give rainfall in Punjab but northern plains remained largely dry except light rain in Jaipur-Ajmer region on Saturday.

It rained at a few places in J&K whereas at isolated places in Himachal & Uttarakhand. However Uttarkashi in Uttarakhand got heavy rain measuring 64 mm on Saturday. Dehradun also received 14.2 & 9.2 mm on Friday & Saturday respectively. Also light snowfall in higher reaches of the western Himalayan region. So O-2 remained dull in providing any significant precipitation.

Uttarkashi: 64 mm

Dehradun: 23.4 mm
Joshimath: 12 mm
Pahalgam: 10 mm
Shopian: 7 mm
