Nov. 9, Srinagar: Even though the Meteorological Department forecast further precipitation on Friday, reports of light snowfall over higher reaches were received from different locations in Kashmir as temperatures continued to dip across Jammu and Kashmir.

According to reports, on Thursday evening, there was some light snowfall in higher elevations such as Gulmarg, Gurez, Tangdhar, Keran, and others.


In Jammu and Kashmir, the MeT forecasted snowfall over the upper regions and rain in the lowlands starting on Thursday night.

According to MeT authorities, J&K is expected to see rain and snow on Thursday and Friday due to an active western disturbance.

Thursday afternoon was predicted to be the start of the precipitation, which would begin in the upper regions and move down to the plains by nightfall.

Farmers were urged to halt agricultural work for three days, according to the MeT report.

Up until Thursday afternoon, the weather remained largely dry in J&K, with a partly cloudy sky in Kashmir.

The MeT had predicted that November 9 would be mostly overcast with light rain over lowlands and light snow over higher ranges like Razdan Pass, Sadhna Pass, Sinthan Pass, Zojila, and Mughal Road.

Director of MeT’s Srinagar center, Mukhar Ahmad, said on the microblogging site X: “Weather is expected to be generally cloudy with a spell of light rain over many places and light snow over higher reaches.” Farmers were ordered to halt farming activities for three days, according to the MeT report.

The temperatures in J&K have dropped as a result of the recent rains.
