Rain and snow continues to lash the hilly states of North India, particularly Jammu and Kashmir. Most places of the states such as Srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Rajaouri and Poonch have been reporting snowfall since morning hours.
The Kashmir Valley continued to be cut off from the rest of the country as Jammu-Srinagar Highway remained suspended for the second consecutive day. Flight operations at the Srinagar airport were also shut.
However, intensity and spread have been less over the states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. In fact, the snowfall activity has been confined to higher reaches of the states but rainfall has been drenching several places.
