The reason for these rainy and snowy spells over the hills of North India can be attributed to the Western Disturbance which has affecting the Western Himalayas for the last few days. Now, as per Skymet Weather, this weather system is likely to move away gradually, thereby significantly reducing the intensity of rain and snow over the hills. However, remnants of the system will continue to give isolated rain and thundershowers over East Jammu and Kashmir and North Himachal Pradesh for the next 24 hours. Thereafter, the hilly states of North India can brace for clear weather, marked with sunny days once again. – See more at: http://www.skymetweather.com/content/weather-news-and-analysis/sunny-days-in-offing-for-jammu-and-kashmir-himachal-pradesh/#sthash.xnd5Dz9R.dpuf
