Jammu and Kashmir Prepares for 4-Day Wet Spell with Rain and Snowfall Predicted

Srinagar, Oct 12: The Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir is bracing for a four-day wet spell beginning this Saturday, as per forecasts by local meteorologists.

The reason for this anticipated weather change is the impact of two successive Western Disturbances (WDs), expected to affect the region from the evening of October 13.

Earlier this week, several parts of J&K experienced a two-day spell of wet weather, accompanied by fresh snowfall in the higher reaches of Kashmir and the Banihal area in the Jammu division.

According to the Deputy Director of the Meteorological department, there is a high likelihood of rainfall in the plains and snowfall in the higher areas of Jammu and Kashmir from October 13 evening until October 17 evening.

During this four-day period, the higher elevations are predicted to receive snowfall ranging from 2 to 6 inches, causing a drop in temperatures across the Union Territory.

Weather conditions are expected to improve starting October 18 morning.

Independent Weather Forecaster, Faizan Arif Keng, provided further details of the upcoming wet spell. On October 14, widespread rain and snow are expected, particularly in the Kashmir region. On October 15, intermittent rain and snow may occur in some areas, with overcast skies and minimal precipitation in others.

October 16 is likely to see moderate rain and snowfall in most regions, with the possibility of heavy showers in a few areas.

October 17 may bring lingering rain or snow showers until morning or afternoon, with the Western Disturbance finally clearing out.

This weather system is expected to bring a significant drop in daytime temperatures, necessitating the use of warm clothing.

Maximum daytime temperatures in most parts of Kashmir are predicted to remain below 14°C on October 16 and 17. The Jammu region is also expected to experience a noticeable decline in daytime temperatures on these dates.

In preparation for the wet spell, the Director of the Meteorological department, Sonum Lotus, has issued an advisory to local farmers.

They are encouraged to delay harvesting their crops between October 14 and 18 due to the expected inclement weather. Additionally, the wet conditions may temporarily disrupt transportation, particularly in vulnerable areas such as Zojilla, Mughal Road, Sinthan Top, Sadnatop, and other regions.
