MeT Issues Latest Prediction with Chances of Snowfall in Kashmir

Srinagar, Jan 24: In a positive turn of events, the Meteorological Department has issued a new prediction indicating potential snowfall in Kashmir.

Despite ruling out significant weather activity until January 24, the latest forecast suggests a change in the weather pattern.

A weather official shared that dry conditions are expected to persist until January 24, with mild Western Disturbances (WDs) approaching on January 16 and 20 evenings.

While these disturbances might bring generally cloudy weather with light rain and snow over isolated middle and higher reaches during January 16th and 20th nights, the overall outlook remained unremarkable until January 24.

However, the official hinted at the possibility of light rain and snow at scattered places from January 25-27, based on indications from various models. Further updates will be provided in the coming days.

Simultaneously, dense fog and cold day conditions are expected to continue over the plains of the Jammu region until January 16.

Despite these predictions, the temperatures in Kashmir have been chilly, with Srinagar recording a low of minus 4.2°C, 2.1°C below the seasonal norm. Other regions, including Qazigund, Pahalgam, Kokernag, Kupwara, Gulmarg, and Jammu, reported varying temperatures.

Jammu experienced the season’s coldest night at 2.5°C, down by 4.5°C from the previous night.

The current weather conditions coincide with the ongoing ‘Chillai-Kalan,’ a 40-day harsh winter period in the Kashmir valley, which will last until January 29.

This is followed by ‘Chillai-Khurd’ from January 30 to February 19 and ‘Chillai-Bachha’ from February 20 to March 1.

Stay updated for further developments on the changing weather scenario in the region.
