Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 29: The chilly weather conditions have intensified as the night temperature dipped below freezing point across Kashmir valley due to dry weather and ice cold winds.
Meanwhile, people continued to shiver in twin border towns of Leh and Kargil, which were the two coldest places in the region.
A Met department spokesperson told that weather will remain dry during the next about a week in the state, which could result in further dip in the night temperature though the day temperature is expected to improve.
The border town of Leh was the coldest place in the region at minus 8.1 degree followed by neighbouring Kargil, where the mercury settled at minus 7.4 degree.
The spokesperson said that skies will be partly cloudy during the next 24 hours in Leh, where the minimum temperatures will be around 11 degree and minus 9 degree, respectively.
After witnessing a dip of about 3 degree in the night temperature, people in the summer capital, Srinagar, woke up to a chilly and foggy Thursday morning. Against 2.2 degree recorded in Srinagar on Wednesday, the night temperature was minus 0.9 degree, which is the normal temperature during this time of the year.
He said skies will be mainly clear with mist during the next 24 hours in Srinagar, where the maximum and minimum temperatures will be around 15 degree and minus 2 degree, respectively.
The mercury in the world famous ski resort of Gulmarg also dipped about 4 degree from Wednesday and settled at minus 3 degree, which is slightly below normal. However, despite chill weather conditions, tourists, both national and international, were enjoying different activities in the ski resort, which is about 55 km from here in north Kashmir. Tourists are enjoying their stay in Gulmarg, despite chilly weather conditions. The ski slopes are not fully covered with snow in main Gulmarg, but have a thick layer in the upper reaches.
