SRINAGAR: The Meteorological Centre in Srinagar has forecasted the likelihood of light rain or snowfall in the remote higher areas of Jammu and Kashmir within the next 24 hours. The weather is anticipated to remain predominantly clear to partly cloudy on Thursday, with the chance of isolated higher areas experiencing light rain or snowfall tonight.
From November 3 to 6, the weather is expected to be primarily dry. Subsequently, between November 7 and 8, it is predicted to be moderately to mostly cloudy, with the potential for light snow in the isolated higher regions. The outlook for November 9-10 indicates generally cloudy conditions with light rain or snowfall in some higher areas, as reported by the Meteorological Centre. Overall, no substantial weather disturbances are anticipated until November 10.
Razdan Top in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district received a fresh episode of light snowfall late at night, while lower areas experienced light rain showers, according to sources. Kashmir weather expert Faizan Arif suggests that, owing to a very weak Western disturbance, there may be sporadic occurrences of light rain or snow in a few areas today, particularly in certain parts of north Kashmir.
In the Kashmir plains, the minimum temperature is expected to range from 2 to 5°C, with maximum temperatures hovering around 20-22°C. The recorded minimum temperature in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, was 6.7°C on Thursday, followed by Qazigund at 4.0°C, Pahalgam at 2.8°C, Kupwara at 8.5°C, Kokernag at 6.5°C, and Gulmarg at 3.9°C, as reported by the Meteorological Centre.
