"The Western Disturbance is hitting Northwest India. Its effect has started to be seen in Jammu-Kashmir. On May 24 and 25, it will have its effect in Northwest India, Delhi-NCR and North Rajasthan. It will be cloudy and some light rain may also occur," IMD Delhi Regional head Kuldeep Srivastava told ANI.
