The weather woes continued on Friday even as intermittent moderate to heavy rain lashed Kashmir valley during the last over 48 hours, resulting in chilly weather conditions.

However, the night temperature improved and settled above normal due to overcast conditions at most places in Kashmir valley, where wet weather is predicted till Sunday.
A Met department spokesperson said that light to moderate rain and thundershowers would occur at most places during the next 72 hours in Kashmir valley under the influence of Western Disturbance (WD), which is active in the region.
He said the weather will be dry on April 19. However, he said a fresh WD, which would originate from the Arabian Sea and would approach the region through Afghanistan and Pakistan, would hit the region on April 20.
''Under the influence of this WD, another spell of wet weather is predicted in the valley,'' he added.
Intermittent moderate to heavy rain lashed world famous ski resort of Gulmarg, about 55 km from here in north Kashmir, since Wednesday night, resulting in dip in the maximum temperature. However, the night temperature improved slightly though settled below normal in the ski resort, which has started to witness a dip in the footfall of tourists due to rise in COVID-19 cases across the country. Against 0.5 degree recorded on Thursday, the night temperature in Gulmarg settled at 1 degree. The tourists at the ski resort woke up to a chilly and rainy Friday morning. The weather at the ski resort remained chilly throughout the day due to intermittent moderate to heavy rain.
After witnessing marginal improvement in the night temperature due to overnight rain, people in Srinagar woke up to a chilly and rainy morning. Against 7.8 degree recorded on Thursday, the night temperature in the city improved and settled at 8 degree, which is slightly above normal. Meanwhile, the vehicular and pedestrian movement was badly affected due to water-logging on many roads in the city, where people could be seen wearing warm clothes, including woolens and jackets, to evade chilly weather conditions. Many roads in the city, including uptown and civil lines, witnessed heavy traffic jam.
The spokesperson said that there would be light to moderate rain and thundershowers would occur during the next 24 hours in Srinagar, where the maximum and minimum temperatures would be around 12 degree and 7 degree, respectively.
World famous health resort of Pahalgam, about 100 km from here in south Kashmir, also received intermittent light to moderate rain since Wednesday night, resulting in chilly weather conditions. The mercury at the health resort also improved owing to overcast conditions and settled at 3.4 degree, which is slightly above normal.
Intermittent moderate to heavy rain also lashed other parts of Kashmir valley, including Qazigund, gateway to the valley, Kupwara in north Kashmir and tourist resort of Kokernag. The night temperature at these places settled at 7.4 degree, 6.3 degree and 6 degree, respectively.
