According to Sonum Lotus, director of the Meteorological Department (MeT), the weather in J&K would be mostly dry from June 9 to June 12, as reported by the Kashmir News Observer (KNO).


However, he did not rule out the possibility of light showers or thunderstorms, especially in the evening, any time throughout the following four days.

Only 10-20% of the time will there be a display and storms in the evening, he claimed.

Lotus further noted that significant precipitation in Jammu and Kashmir is not expected till June 12.

However, he did say that there is a chance of warmer days ahead, thus the highest temperatures in J&K will rise gradually.

With a high of 28 degrees Celsius in Srinagar and a high of 27.8 degrees Celsius in Qazigund, today is going to be a hot one anywhere you go.

However, starting on June 5th, the weather improved, the maximum temperature rose, and the people were relieved of the adverse weather that had caused such massive losses to the agricultural sector.
