Moisture is hitting the mountain tops of Aravali and it's instantly lifted up. Chain expands from South Rajasthan-Delhi," tweeted IndiaMetSky Weather.

Western Disturbance is a weather phenomenon that affects the northwestern parts of India, bringing with it clouds, rains, and sometimes snow.

Western Disturbances form over the Mediterranean Sea and move eastward, picking up moisture and energy as they go. When they reach the northwestern parts of India, they interact with the Himalayas and cause an increase in cloud cover, which often results in precipitation in the form of rain or snow.
