Mercury dipped in most parts of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh on Monday with Drass emerging as the coldest place in the region at minus 27.2 degrees Celsius, a Meteorological Department spokesperson said. The weatherman has forecast dry weather in the plains and the higher reaches of the two union territories for the next four days.

Srinagar, which witnessed an unprecedented snowfall last week, marked a dip in the day and night temperatures which settled at 5.8 degrees Celsius and minus 1.6 degrees Celsius, respectively, he said.


The famous ski resort of Gulmarg in north Kashmir was the coldest recorded place in Kashmir at a minimum of minus 10.2 degrees Celsius, while Pahalgam hill resort in south Kashmir recorded a low of minus 10 degrees Celsius, the spokesperson said. The minimum temperature in Jammu was 5.7 degrees Celsius, he said.
