The festive season is here, and the countdown to Karwa Chauth has begun. Karwa Chauth is one of the most popular Hindu women's festivals in North India, particularly in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Bihar.

Women celebrate the festival of Karwa Chauth with full excitement, however this year this spirit may be dampened by heavy rainfalls.

Married women, for the well being of their husbands, fast from sunrise until moonrise and break the fast after observing the moon. But this year the moon might play hide and seek, owing to clouds.

According to weather reports, a heavy downpour is expected on Karwa Chauth, October 24 in various regions of north India.

From Friday to Sunday, October 22-24, a new western disturbance is likely to strike the Western Himalayan Region, particularly the northernmost regions of Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh.
