January 13, 2021 | BK News Service

There was some relief from chilly weather conditions on Tuesday even as bright sunshine greeted people though ice cold winds continued in the summer capital, Srinagar, and other parts of Kashmir valley.

Meanwhile, world famous ski resort of Gulmarg was the coldest place in the valley after the mercury dipped about 2 degree from Monday and settled at minus 11.2 degree.
A Met department spokesperson said that weather will remain dry during the next about three days. “The dry weather will result in considerable dip in the night temperature though the maximum temperature is expected to improve due to sunshine,” he said.
After witnessing above normal night temperature despite a slight dip, people woke up to a chilly Tuesday morning in Srinagar due to overcast conditions, coupled with ice cold winds. However, as the day progressed sun came out from behind the cloudy though ice cold winds continued. Against minus 0.2 degree recorded on Monday, the night temperature in Srinagar was minus 0.9 degree, which is over a degree above normal.
Gulmarg, where the ski slopes are covered under several feet of snow, was the coldest place in the valley at minus 11.2 degree, which is 3 degree below normal. “Despite chilly weather conditions, the tourists are out on ski slopes enjoying different snow related activities. All the ski slopes have been thrown open for tourists,” a hotelier from Gulmarg told UNI over the phone.
The night temperature at world famous health resort of Pahalgam, about 100 km from here in south Kashmir, dipped and settled at minus 5.3 degree, against minus 4.6 degree recorded on Monday. The night temperature was 2 degree above normal.
The mercury at Qazigund, gateway to the valley, Kupwara in north Kashmir and tourist resort of Kukernag settled at minus 1.4 degree, minus 1.8 degree and minus 3.9 degree, respectively.
