‘Western Disturbances to Trigger Moderate Rainfall in Kashmir’



Kashmir based weather department Friday said that the region may witness moderate to heavy rainfall in coming days.

Speaking to Kashmir Life Srinagar Meteorological Department head, Sonum Lotus said, “Western Disturbances may bring moderate to heavy rainfall in Kashmir from October 24 to 26.”

“Under the influence of this weather system, moderate to heavy rain / thundershower and snowfall over higher reaches will occur at widespread places in Kashmir and Jammu divisions and at many places in Ladakh region, particularly in Kargil,” Sonum said.

He said that higher places might receive heavy rain or snow during this period.

He, however, maintained that people need not to worry about it. “It is just routine; it won’t be continuous rainfall.”

“The weather condition may trigger landslide and blockade of road in vulnerable areas of the state particularly along Srinagar-Jammu, Srinagar-Leh, and Leh-Manali road,” he said.

“Above weather system may disrupt surface and air transport during these days,” he added.
