Srinagar, Nov 21: Widespread rain and snow would occur during the next 24 hours under the influence of a fresh Western Disturbance (WD), which is active in the region, resulting in further dip in the maximum temperature.
However, the night temperature improved and settled above normal across Kashmir valley.
A Met department spokesperson told that a fresh WD, which originated from the Arabian Sea and is approaching the region though Afghanistan and Pakistan, hit the region on Thursday afternoon. "Under the influence of this WD, widespread light to heavy snowfall would occur during the next 24 hours in the valley," he said.
He said Kupwara and Baramulla will be the most affected districts, which will receive moderate to heavy snowfall for two days from Thursday. "World famous ski resort of Gulmarg, which is under several feet of snow, will also witnesses moderate to heavy snowfall," he said.
The spokesperson said that the WD will then travel to south Kashmir and would result in light to moderate snowfall in upper reaches and rain in plains.

The night temperature in the ski resort settled at 1.6 degree, which is above normal. "It is very cold on Thursday in this ski resort, but tourists are out on ski slopes enjoying different snow related activities," a hotelier told over the phone.

The day temperature dipped further and settled below normal in tourist resort of Kokernag, Kupwara in north Kashmir and Qazigund, gateway to the valley.
