Gulmarg, other upper reaches receive fresh snowfall; rain lashes plains in Kashmir


The upper reaches, including the world famous ski resort of Gulmarg, received fresh snowfall, while rains lashed summer capital, Srinagar, and other plains in Kashmir valley.

Meanwhile, the night temperature witnessed some improvement and settled above normal at majority of places in the valley, though day chill intensified due to wet weather.

A Met department spokesperson told Daily Gadyal that light to moderate rain and snow would occur at many places during the next 24 hours in the state under the influence of a Western Disturbance (WD) which is active in the region.
“Isolated light rain or snow could occur during the subsequent two day from Thursday,” he said.

Much to the delight of skiers and tourists, the ski slopes at the world famous ski resort of Gulmarg, 55 km from here in north Kashmir, received fresh snowfall since early on Wednesday morning.
