February 3, 2014 2:09 PM |

As predicted earlier, Jammu & Kashmir is receiving rain and snow which is likely to last till the next two days due to a Western Disturbance.

With this, the day temperatures in Jammu & Kashmir will also witness a drop. The state is experiencing above normal maximum temperatures at the moment. The maximum recorded in Srinagar was 8.9°C, two notches above normal while, Banihal recorded 12.6°C as the maximum temperature on Sunday which is four notches above normal.

Bhaderwah in the plains recorded a maximum of 15°C, 3°C above normal while the day temperature recorded in Gulmarg on Sunday was 0.5°C. According to our forecast, day temperatures could fall by up to 3°C due to clouding, snowfall and rain in the Kashmir Valley.

Similar kind of day temperatures are being observed in Himachal Pradesh. Shimla recorded a maximum of 18°C on Sunday which is 9°C above normal. Manali recorded a maximum of 14.2°C on the same day which is again three notches above the normal temperature. Dharamsala saw the day temperature settle four notches above the normal at 19.2°C. Our meteorologists expect the day temperatures to fall in the coming two days due to the Western Disturbance.
