Peak winter almost over, no snowfall yet in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand
NEW DELHI: The peak winter period is almost over in north India and no major hill station in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand has yet received a single spell of snow. January has been almost totally dry across the region so far, raising concern over Himachal's apple crop and water availability in the summer if the trend continues.
Uttarakhand has 100% rain deficit in January so far, while in Himachal Pradesh it is more than 99%. The northern plains too have had no rain during the month, which is a major reason for the mild winter so far. And, the situation is unlikely to change in at least the next five-six days, says the Met office - here is the link to the news - https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/62547079.cms

Weather forecast for the next two days

Whereas, the weather has remained generally dry over the past one week in the state of Uttarakhand, but the met department has predicted chances of light rainfall in areas of Chamoli, Uttarkashi & Pithoragarh. However, chances of weather taking a turn of chances of snowfall may occur after 23rd Jan., 2018 - here is the link to the news feature in Hindi - https://www.amarujala.com/photo-gall...arakhand-state
