Most parts of the Kashmir Valley experienced dim sunshine and pleasant warmth on the last day of Chillai Kallan on Saturday.
The coldest forty days of the Kashmiri calendar, Chillai Kallan passed this year without any major snow fall.
“It is after four decades that Kashmir did not receive any major snowfall in Chillai Kallan,” MeT sources said.
Barring few nights, the temperature also did not fall to the extent Kashmiris were used to during Chillai Kallan.
The adventure tourists who had reached the world famous ski spot Gulmarg, also felt sad as the area did not witness any major snowfall so far.
Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, and most other places in the Valley experienced comparatively warmer days throughout the forty days calendar.
“There would not be any major change in the weather for the next few days,” MeT sources said.
Chillai-Kallan would be now followed by a new 20-day long Chillai Khurd according to the Kashmiri calendar.
