Srinagar, Feb 27: Day chill revisited as sun played hide and seek throughout the day while icy winds continued, resulting in dip in the maximum temperature, here in the summer capital and other parts of Kashmir, where rain and snow is predicted for two days from Friday onward.
However, the night temperature witnessed major improvement and settled several degrees above normal across Kashmir valley due to overcast conditions.
A Met department spokesperson said that scattered light rain and snow would occur during the next 24 hours in Kashmir valley under the influence of a fresh Western Disturbance, which is active in the region.
‘’A weather warning has been issued for Friday and Saturday during which heavy rain and snow would occur at isolated places and light to moderate rain and snow at most places under the influence of this WD in the valley’’, he added.

Despite an improvement of 3 degree in the night temperature, world famous ski resort of Gulmarg, about 55 km from here in north Kashmir, was the coldest place in the valley after mercury settled at minus 2.6 degree, which is 3 degree above normal.
