The cold wave has gripped the valley

Kashmir Valley continues to reel under an intense cold wave.

The minimum temperatures throughout the valley and the Ladakh region remained several notches below the freezing point despite partially cloudy weather.

The night’s lowest temperature in Srinagar on Friday was recorded minus 5.5 while it was minus 4.8 and minus 2.2 in Pahalgam and Gulmarg.

Leh town was the coldest in the valley today at minus 8.2 degrees Celsius, officials of MeT department said.

The Dal Lake and most other water bodies around Srinagar city and elsewhere in the valley have partially frozen.

“Weather is likely to remain cloudy and dry in the state during the next 24 hours and this could bring in some improvement in the night temperatures during this period,” the official noted.
