Fresh snowfall and rains disrupted normal life across Kashmir on Sunday while the Srinagar-Jammu highway continued to remain closed for traffic for the fourth straight day, even as local Meteorological department predicted more precipitation in next 24 hours.

The snow and rains started in Kashmir on Saturday evening and continued intermittently till 4 am on Sunday. MeT department officials said the higher reaches received heavy snowfall overnight while the plains received a mix of rain and snow

MeT officials said Gulmarg in Baramulla district received 11-inch fresh snow, Kupwara 8-cm and Srinagar 61.6-mm mix of rain and snow. They said Qazigund and Kokernag recorded 82.8-mm and 41.2-mm mix of rain and snow, respectively.

“Machil, Gurez, Afferwat, Sadna Pass and some other higher reaches in Kashmir received fresh snowfall,” reports and witnesses said.

The fresh precipitation brought normal life to a halt in most parts of Kashmir, forcing people to prefer staying indoors. Scores of areas across Kashmir plunged into darkness since Saturday evening itself following start of rains and snowfall, reports said on Sunday. 

 

In areas of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, roads leading to district headquarters remained closed due to fresh snowfall.

The snowfall resulted in water-logging in Srinagar and other towns of Kashmir.

MeT officials said they are expecting light to moderate rains and snow in next 24 hours. “The Western Disturbance is still active in region,” they said.
