Temp dips considerably as incessant rains lash parts of Kashmir
8/7/2018 10:48:37 PM
Early Times Report
Srinagar, Aug 7: Incessant rain lashed Kashmir valley, including the summer capital, Srinagar, where the maximum temperature dipped over 12 degree since Monday, bringing much needed relief to the people from hot and humid weather.
However, life was thrown out of gear following heavy rain in Srinagar and adjoining areas as traffic movement was affected due to waterlogging at many places, including Lal Chowk, the nerve centre of the summer capital.
A Met department spokesperson told that light to moderate rain and thundershowers would occur at most places in the state during the next 48 hours. "The weather is expected to remain wet during the next five days," he added.
After witnessing hot and humid weather during the past about a week, incessant rain lashed Srinagar since early this morning, resulting in considerable dip in the maximum temperature. Against 33.8 degree recorded on Monday, the maximum temperature in the summer capital was 21.5 degree, which is about 8 degree below normal.
However, normal life was affected due to incessant rain in Srinagar, where majority of the roads, including in Lal Chowk and adjoining areas, were waterlogged disrupting movement of traffic. But, the government has put into service pumps to drain out water from the roads.
The spokesperson said moderate rain and thundershowers would occur during the next 24 hours in Srinagar, where the maximum and minimum temperatures will be around 24 degree and 20 degree, respectively.
World famous ski resort of Gulmarg, about 55 km from here in north Kashmir, also received rain. But, Gulmarg was the only place in the valley where the maximum temperature remained constant at 23 degree since Monday.
Rain also lashed Qazigund, gateway to the valley, Kupwara in north Kashmir and another tourist resort of Kukernag, resulting in dip in the maximum temperature. The day temperature dipped and settled at 3 degree, 5.6 degree and 2.8 degree below normal.
World famous health resort of Pahalgam, about 100 km from here in south Kashmir, also received incessant rain since early this morning, resulting in dip in the day temperature, which settled at 3.2 degree below normal.
