After days of rain and snowfall, Kashmir will experience dry weather, says IMD
After three days of rain and snow in different parts of Kashmir, IMD has forecast dry weather for the next week.
During the past three days, while the plains registered rains, the upper reaches of Kashmir, especially Gulmarg, a popular tourist destination, experienced good snowfall. This was the third snowfall of the month in Gulmarg and authorities hope it will attract tourists and skiers. The upper reaches of other tourist spots, Sonmarg and Pahalgam, also experienced good snowfall.
“As of today, the weather will most likely remain dry until December 2nd. You cannot rule out light rain or snow in isolated locations for the next 24 hours. No significant weather [change] for a week, “IMD said in a morning update.
While Jammu recorded the maximum temperature of 16.5 degrees Celsius, Srinagar recorded 5.6 degrees Celsius, Kargil recorded 4.5 degrees Celsius, Leh was at 1 degree Celsius and Drass at -1 degree Celsius. Meanwhile, Mughal Road was closed after heavy snowfall in the region. Traffic circulates on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway.
