Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 13: Minimum temperatures throughout the Kashmir Valley and Ladakh region remained below freezing point on Wednesday as the ski resort of Gulmarg recorded the coldest temperature at minus 9.8 degrees Celsius.
The weather office has forecast rain in the plains and snowfall in the higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir till Thursday.
Leh recorded a minimum temperature of minus 6.5 and Kargil was at minus 5.8 degrees Celsius.
Srinagar was at minus 0.7, Pahalgam at minus 2.1, Jammu recorded 8.8, Katra 8.2, Batote 1.1, Bannihal 0.6, Bhaderwah 0.4 and Udhampur was at 8.0 degrees Celsius, the Met said.
The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway remained closed for traffic today due to snowfall.
A weather department official said the present weather conditions in Jammu and Kashmir are likely to continue till tomorrow due to a western disturbance over the state.
The traffic on 300 kilometer long Jammu Srinagar national highway was suspended on second consecutive day today due to following land slides triggered on different parts on highway between Banihal and Ramban.
Reports said that a heavy land slide occurred on highway near Marog five kilometers short from Ramban town which hampers the traffic movement on highway.
The construction company HCC pressed their men and machaniory to clear the road for one way traffic. Traffic officials said that it is expected to clear the slide near Marog up to 6 :00 pm. More than one hundred light passanger vehicles who was stranded at Banihal from last two days today allowed to move towards Jammu but the slide near Marog forced the traffic authorities to stop the traffic near slide area. An official of the traffic police when contacted said that they are trying hard to clear the slide and debris from the highway and after the clearance of highway and green signal of construction and maintaience authouraties they will first try to allow the stranded traffic towards Jammu. He said that the kashmir bound traffic is stopped at Ramban and Chanderkote area on the highway and if weather permits they will try to clear the kashmir bound traffic as well.
The falling of stones near Panthal and Marog create hurdles to the highway maintainance agencies to clear the slides on these locations. Many passangers who reach Banihal through train from valley crossed the slide area by foot to reach their destinations. It is pertinent to mention that the kashmir bound traffic which was struck in Banihal was cleared by the traffic police on Tuesday evening after clearance of snow from Banihal up to Jawhar tunnel area of the highway and 128 lmvs were crossed Jawhar tunnel towards valley .
In the state's summer capital, flight services to and fro from the Srinagar International Airport were yesterday hit due to poor visibility caused by the heavy snowfall.
Flight operations to and fro the Srinagar International Airport remained suspended today due to poor visibility caused by intermittent snowfall in Kashmir, officials said.
"So far, 10 inbound flights have been cancelled due to poor visibility around Srinagar airport," an official of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) said.
He said a decision on resumption of flight operations will be taken after reviewing the visibility.
Intermittent snowfall in Srinagar and other areas of the valley has snapped the transport links of Kashmir with the outside world as the arterial Srinagar-Jammu National Highway has been closed since Monday night for traffic
