Fresh snowfall in Kashmir valley


SRINAGAR: The Kashmir Valley, including summer capital Srinagar and other plain areas, received fresh snowfall on Sunday, a day after ‘Chillai-Kalan’, the 40-day period of harshest winter ended, even as the minimum temperatures rose by several degrees to provide relief from the intense cold conditions.

“Snowfall was recorded in higher reaches, including the tourist resorts of Pahalgam and Gulmarg and Kupwara area of the Valley, during the night,” a MET Department spokesman said here.


The snowfall started in the morning, he said, adding that owing to cloudy sky during the night, minimum temperature in the city appreciated by nearly three degrees from yesterday’s minus 2.9 degrees Celsius to settle at minus 0.2 degree Celsius.
