What does Yellow Weather Mean for Himachal Pradesh and Your Travel Plans?

The colour-coding mechanism for warnings set by the Indian Meteorological Department issued fresh yellow weather warning for Himachal Pradesh on Monday Morning. It is forecasted that heavy rains may continue over the next few days. In an alert system of four colours, yellow ranges on the second indicating bad weather up ahead and advising to make contingency plans for travel delays and other disruptions. 

The MeT Department official informed, “Heavy rains are likely to occur in the plains and low and mid hills of the state on Tuesday and Wednesday.” While rains are expected in Shimla till 4th August, the MeT Department official further adds, “Meanwhile, some places in the state, including Manali, Una, Kasauli and the capital Shimla, received rainfall in the last 24 hours.”

In the meantime, Una is still the hottest district over the state with a temperature of 28 degree Celsius. Other tourist destinations such as Shimla, Dalhousie and Dharmashala have maintained a temperature of 20 degree Celsius.
