Kashmir Weather

The hilly states of North India have been observing dry weather conditions with no weather activity for the last few days. Moreover, prolonged dry spell for the hills across the region has resulted in an increase in temperatures.

The last time the region recorded rains was on May 26. In fact, a relatively drier spell is expected for another three days and no rains are expected before June 2.

Due to this dry spell, temperatures in the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand are settling well above the normal levels.
