The recent downpour lowered Kashmir’s temperature.
The MeT authorities said that there was a chance of light rain and snowfall on November 3 in some areas of Jammu and Kashmir due to a weak Western disturbance that was influencing the area.
“It is anticipated that a second, concurrent Western disturbance will affect the area starting on November 7th,” they said. “The spell won’t be heavy, though.”
On Friday, the MeT in Srinagar predicted rain and snow at a few higher altitudes.
Rainy weather is expected to return to Kashmir starting on November 7.
The MeT authorities said that from November 4 to November 6, the weather would mostly be dry. From November 7 to 8, the weather will be pretty overcast, with the risk of light snowfall over isolated higher reaches.
According to the MeT office, “November 9 to 10 would see generally cloudy weather with light rain or snowfall over a few higher reaches.” “Until November 10th, there hasn’t been any significant weather activity overall.”
Late at night, Razdan Top in the Bandipora district saw new, light snowfall, while the lower regions saw light rain showers.
Faizan Arif, a meteorological specialist from Kashmir, said that light rain or snow might fall on Friday in some locations due to a fairly weak Western disturbance, particularly in certain regions of north Kashmir.

Since then, the valley’s general weather has been impacted by sporadic showers and snowfall over the upper levels.
