Number Theory: How little snowfall has India received this January?

Jan 29, 2024 07:54 AM IST

Historical average shows that this time of the year, more than half of J&K, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and almost all of Ladakh should be covered with snow

Anecdotal accounts suggest that India’s hills and mountains have not received as much snow this winter as they did in the past despite the spell of snowfall late last week. While snowfall data is not available from the India Meteorological Department (IMD), its rainfall statistics suggest that this could be the case.
