Unexpected snowfall, rains in Kashmir; temperature plummets

Higher reaches of tourist resort Pahalgam in south Kashmir and Gulmarg in north Kashmir received snow yesterday, a MeT official said.

The official said forecast for next 24 hours suggests more rains and thundershowers at several places in the Valley.

Normal day temperature for this time of the year is around 25 degrees Celsius while the night temperature should be around 11 degrees, he said.

However, the mercury fell several degrees below normal across Kashmir Valley.

In Gulmarg, which is a hot spot for the tourists flocking the Valley as mercury soars elsewhere in the country, the minimum temperature fell to minus three degrees Celsius.

The maximum temperature in Gulmarg yesterday was recorded at 7.5 degrees Celsius, the official said

In the summer capital Srinagar, which has been been receiving rains for last several days, the minimum temperature was recorded at 10.1 degrees Celsius, nearly one degree below normal.

In Pahalgam, which received 10.6 millimeters rainfall since morning, the minimum temperature was recorded at 5.1 degrees Celsius.

Qazigund, the gateway town to Kashmir, recorded a minimum temperature of 9.6 degrees Celsius, the official said.
