 The Srinagar station of the Indian Meteorological Department on Sunday said Kashmir is likely to receive heavy to very heavy snowfall till Tuesday forenoon.
“There will be moderate to heavy snowfall in Kashmir and rain in plains of Jammu till January 14. There is possibility of heavy to very heavy snowfall during Jan 12 night to Jan 14 forenoon at many places in J&K,” Sonam Lotus, the head of Srinagar station said.
“Warning code ‘Orange’ has been issued which means people should remain prepared to tackle impending adverse weather,” Lotus said.
If the Met forecast turns true, there is likely to be disruption in air and surface transport.
On Sunday, private airline Indigo cancelled all flights to and fro Srinagar for the day. Fresh snowfall in Kashmir threw life out of gear in the Valley on Sunday and disrupted flight operations at the airport here, officials said.
Most parts of the Valley received moderate to heavy snowfall on Sunday which continued during the day.
According to a MET official, while the plains received light to moderate snowfall, the higher reaches of the valley and Jammu and Ladakh regions experienced heavy snowfall.

Gulmarg ski-resort in Baramulla district of north Kashmir recorded eight centimetres of fresh snow, while Kupwara, also in the north, received 25 cm, the official added.
There are reports of heavy snowfall in most parts in the higher reaches of the Valley, Jammu region and some parts of Ladakh Union territory, he said.
The MET Office has forecast widespread snowfall across the valley till Monday.
The snowfall affected flight operations at Srinagar airport as no flight was able to land till about noon.
Private airline Indigo cancelled all flights to and fro Srinagar for the day, the official said.
He, however, said if there was improvement in the weather, the air traffic would most likely resume.
