January 18, 2022 | BK News Service

The Srinagar meteorological department on Monday said Jammu and Kashmir will be hit by a western disturbance which will bring light to moderate rains and snowfall.
The meteorological department said a spell of light rain and snow will be recorded in plains and light to moderate snow over the higher reaches at scattered places during January 17-18.
The officials said there is no forecast of major snow till the end of January. “Isolated places may receive light rain or snow in coming days,” the official said.
Kashmir is under the grip of Chillai Kalaan, the harshest, 40-day period of winter when the temperature plunges to below subzero conditions, causing grave inconvenience to people across the Valley.
The Valley received its first major snowfall earlier this month with parts of Kashmir, especially along the Pir Panjal mountains, receiving heavy snowfall which lasted for at least two days.
Meanwhile, night temperature improved in the Kashmir valley as Srinagar, the summer capital of Kashmir, recorded a low of 1 degree Celsius against minus 1.2 degrees the previous night.
Gulmarg in north Kashmir was cold at minus 4.6 degrees Celsius against minus 7 degrees a day ago, which was 3.1 degrees above normal for this time of the year.
Pahalgam in south Kashmir shivered at minus 3.6 degrees Celsius. The temperature at Qazigund, on the Srinagar-Jammu highway, was minus 1 degrees.
Kupwara was hit by 0.5 degrees Celsius but an improvement against the minus 2.1 degrees the previous night.
Leh in Ladakh recorded minus 13.1 degrees Celsius and Drass recorded a low of minus 16.2 degrees Celsius.
