Early Times Report

Jammu, Mar 20: High altitude areas witnessed fresh snowfall and plains in Jammu and Kashmir were lashed with rains on Wednesday. The Kashmir valley is witnessing snowfall in month of March after a long time. While the much-awaited snowfall in the Valley has brought smiles back on farmers as it is a boom for their crops and would amplify the produce. However, for some orchardists, the news of snowfall was not so appealing as it has destroyed their Apple orchids. This is a time of blooms of apple and other fruits in Kashmir Valley. A farmer, resident of Srinagar said, "Snow was needed for the farmers for the bumper harvest. We hope that the snowfall will also resolve the issue of power cuts and scarcity of water in the region." Today, the maximum and minimum temperatures of Srinagar are hovering at 8 Degree Celsius and 2 Degree Celsius, with wind speed 23 kilometres per hour, said India Meteorological Department. The snowfall occurred in Srinagar, Anantnag, Badgam, Bandipore and Baramulla districts of the state. In addition, the weather experts have also predicted that on Thursday (March 21), light to moderate rain and thundershower activities accompanied with isolated snowfall will occur over many parts of Jammu and Kashmir along with few parts of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
This is due to the fresh Western Disturbance approaching hills North India. This system has also induced a cyclonic circulation over parts of Northwest India. "Thunderstorm accompanied with lightning and gusty winds at isolated places very likely over Assam and Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura, Southeast Madhya Pradesh, North Coastal Andhra Pradesh, east Vidarbha, south Chhattisgarh and Odisha," the IMD added.
