Srinagar: The Kashmir Valley would receive fresh snowfall from midnight or Wednesday morning, the local Meteorological department said on Tuesday.

MeT’s Deputy Director Mukhtar Ahmad said that the Valley would receive another snow spell from midnight. “There is possibility of moderate snowfall from midnight or Wednesday morning till next three days,” he said.

He said that plains would receive moderate snowfall from this night while as higher reaches including Gulmarg, Pahalgam and others would receive moderate to heavy snowfall.

“The Western Disturbance is affecting Kashmir from this evening while as the intensity of WD is more towards Pir Panchal and other adjacent areas where the department is predicting moderate to heavy snowfall,” he said.

Mukhtar added that the wet spell will continue for three days.

Notably, the temperature across Kashmir increased from last couple of days following the improvement in weather conditions while as MeT is expecting further dip in the temperature from this night.

Snowy weather in past month led to frequent closure of roads especially Srinagar-Jammu highway that caused postponement of several examinations and left the passengers stranded on the highway for days together.
