While Jammu recorded the season’s maximum temperature at 44.2 degrees Celsius Thursday, Srinagar recorded 29.7 degrees as the day’s maximum temperature on Friday.

“Pahalgam recorded 26.6 as the day’s maximum and 6.5 as the minimum today while Gulmarg was cool at 8.3 degrees Celsius during the night.
