Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 16: World famous ski resort of Gulmarg and other upper reaches continued to receive snowfall during the last 24 hours in Kashmir valley, where weather woos will continue due to prediction of widespread rain and snow.
Meanwhile, the maximum temperature remained several degrees below normal while the minimum temperature settled above normal in the valley.
A Met department spokesman said that widespread rain and snow would occur during the next 24 hours in Kashmir under the influence of a Western Disturbance (WD), which is currently active in the region. "Due to this WD, which originated in the Arabian Sea and entered the region through Afghanistan and Pakistan, the night temperature would increase but the day will become colder," he said.
However, he said the weather will improve from Sunday.
After witnessing above normal night temperature, people woke up to a chilly Saturday morning in the summer capital, Srinagar, where people could be seen wearing jackets and sweaters, to evade chilly conditions. "The night temperature on Friday in Srinagar settled at 3.9 degree, which is about 2 degree below normal," he said.
The spokesperson said that the maximum temperature in the city was about 10 degree below normal.
Gulmarg, where the ski slopes were covered under several feet of snow, received intermittent snowfall during the last 24 hours. "The ski slopes are under over three feet of snow in Gulmarg, which is a well known winter destination for skiers and other adventure lovers from across the globe," said those associated with the tourism industry.
Tourism sector in the valley has suffered heavy loss after August 3, when government ordered tourists and other outsiders to leave the valley for security reasons. Centre later scrapped Article 370 and 35 A besides divided the state into two Union Territories on August 5.
The upper reaches in Gulmarg, including Kongdori, Khilanmarg and Affarwat, the highest skiing point connected by Gandola Cable Car, received fresh snowfall during the last 24 hours.
The higher reaches in north Kashmir, including the areas near the Line of Control (LoC), also received fresh intermittent snowfall since Thursday night. Dozens of roads leading to far flung, remote and border villages were closed to snowfall.
Word famous health resort of Pahalgam, which also serves as base camp during annual Amarnath yatra, also received several inches of fresh snowfall during the last 24 hours. Moderate to heavy snowfall was experienced at holy Amarnath cave and its periphery, Panjterni, Mahaguns, Sheshnag, Pisso top and Chandanwari, the first halting station on traditional yatra route.
Tourist resorts of Deksum and other upper reaches in south Kashmir also received fresh snowfall. Fresh snowfall was also experienced on the historic Mughal road, connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region. The road is closed since November 6 due to accumulation of several feet of snow.
Snowfall was also recorded at Sonamarg and other upper reaches in central Kashmir district of Ganderbal during the last 24 hours. Due to fresh snowfall at Sonamarg, Zojila and Meenmarg, the Srinagar-Leh national highway remained closed for the third day on Friday.
