Rains continued to lash Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday with officials predicting that inclement weather conditions will continue on Wednesday as well.
The Kashmir weather portal however reported that the summer capital recorded its coldest June day in nearly 48 years. Faizan Arif, an independent weather forecaster who operates @Kashmir_Weather handle on Twitter said that Srinagar has experienced its coldest June day in at least 48 years.
However, the Srinagar station of IMD said they could not verify the claims made by Arif as the data centre “has closed for the day” while the official website keeps the record of 10 years only. The website only provides data for hottest June days for the past 10 years.
A long spell of continuous rains in plains and snow in the higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir has plummeted the mercury around 14 notches below the normal for the month of June in Srinagar.
Several water bodies, including Jhelum river, have swelled due to the rain and snow which has been going on for past four days. The incessant rains also caused water logging in city parts.
According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD) Srinagar, the city recorded a maximum temperature of just 15 degrees Celsius.
“The temperature is 14.2 degrees below normal for the month of June in Srinagar,” an official of the IMD Srinagar said, adding that the minimum temperature recorded in the summer capital was 13.3 degrees Celsius.
Officials said Srinagar recorded the maximum temperature of 15.0 C on Tuesday, which is the coldest June day since at least 1975. The temp. remained 14.2 C below the normal. A temperature of 15.0 C is very common in February for Srinagar,” Arif tweeted.
The IMD officials said the temperature has steadily dropped over the past four days across Kashmir valley due to continuous rainfall in plains and snowfall in mountainous areas of the valley.
