Oct 23, 12.00 p.m.: After a short window of clear weather, from Oct 19 to Oct 21, the skies are overcast again in Uttarakhand. It has also started snowing in the higher altitudes.

It rained briefly in the afternoon in the Kotgaon region. Two groups of Phulara Ridge trekkers that are currently on the trek may witness snowfall in the higher altitudes as a result of this precipitation.

On the Lohajung side, while the skies are overcast, there’s no rainfall. Presently, we have one Brahmatal team at Tilandi and one Ali Bedni Bugyal team at Didina.

While some rainfall and snowfall is usually expected at the beginning of autumn, this time, we are observing a markedly higher intensity of precipitation.

But there’s nothing to worry. All groups are geared up and prepared for this unseasonal precipitation. Stay tuned to regular updates here.
