Light rain and snow arrives in Kashmir

Social Media users all across the hilly areas on both sides of the line control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir have started posting images and videos of the first snowfall of the season.

Naseer Ahmed tweeted that First snowfall of the season at Bimber Gali(BG) in Mendhar subdivision of District Poonch!

Friday4FutureJK tweeted that Tararkhel in Poonch (Jammu Division) receives the year’s first major snowfall. Man-made Climate Change has greatly reduced the amount of rainfall in the region, which has resulted in this year’s snow falling only so far into December.

Farooq Ahmad Bhat Incharge Director MeT on Thursday said that there is a possibility of light rain and snow on higher reaches of Jammu & Kashmir.

The meteorological department of Jammu and Kashmir has informed that with a 70 percent chance, a western disturbance is affecting Jammu and Kashmir & Ladakh Union Territories.

The temperature plummeted across Kashmir as most parts of the Valley including the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar, recorded the coldest night of the season in the previous night.
