The MeT predicted fairly widespread light to moderate rain and snow over Jammu and Kashmir during the next 48 hours.
Kashmir Plains, including Srinagar, were lashed by intermittent light to moderate rains during the past 24 hours, resulting in a considerable drop in temperature.

It has also advised farmers to suspend farm operations until March 31.
There is a possibility of landslides, mudslides, and shooting stones during the above period. Thunderstorms and lighting activity, with the possibility of hailstorms and gusty winds, can also occur during the next two days.
