The fresh system would affect western Himalayan region from Sunday.

The incumbent western disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir and neighbourhood

is in no mood to blink even while a successor system is nudging away at its

coat tails from just across the northwest border.



An India Meteorological Department (IMD) update this (Friday) morning said

that the prevailing system has stayed put overnight over the Jammu and

Kashmir region.



It would be another two days before the successor system gets the

opportunity to drop anchor, according to the update.



The fresh system would affect western Himalayan region from Sunday onwards.

The hills and the plains of the northwest will get the resultant steamy and

occasionally wet weather over the next few days.



Meanwhile, scattered rain or snowfall occurred over Jammu and Kashmir and

Himachal Pradesh during the day on Thursday.



Scattered rainfall has also been reported from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and

Andaman and Nicobar Islands and isolated over Madhya Pradesh.



Maximum temperatures were below normal by 2 to 3 deg Celsius over some parts

of Andhra Pradesh, east Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and west Uttar Pradesh.



Satellite cloud imagery early on Friday morning showed the presence of

convective (rain-bearing) clouds over parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal

Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar and southeast Bay of Bengal.
