Kashmir likely to witness fresh snowfall or rainfall today: IMD


Srinagar, Feb 9: Parts of Kashmir Valley are set to experience a fresh spell of rainfall and snowfall over the next 48 hours.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), a feeble western disturbance—low-pressure systems that originate over the Mediterranean Sea and move eastwards while gathering moisture along the way—is set to affect the weather across Northern regions including Jammu and Kashmir over the next two days.

Under its influence, isolated rainfall and/or snowfall is likely over Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh on Tuesday, February 9.

India Meteorological Department stated that the intensity, as well as the distribution of the precipitation during this upcoming spell, is expected to be-low, which is why no warnings or advisories have been issued by the IMD over these regions so far.

Between January 1 and February 8, the precipitation recorded by Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh collectively stands at 96.8 mm (18% below its long-term average for this period).
