Fairly widespread rain expected in Goa.
Not so good news on Kashmir front.

"Fresh western disturbance expected from June 2, and this will last for 4-5 days".

Rain and snow expected mostly in J&K and scattered over Himachal.

Look at that whopper of a cloud system approaching. This weekend may see pass closure again

It will clearly show how the western disturbance is moving towards kashmir.
Cloud motion vectors indicate that himachal may be spared, but you never know. its only by tomorrow morning things will be more clear!

The western disturbance is turning out to be somewhat feeble.
Yes, JK may get quite a bit of rainfall, esp west JK which includes srinagar, but himachal may be spared.
Hanle webcame image taken few minutes before this post was made shows nice clear skies.
Hope it stays this way
