With intermittent showers in the plains and snowfall in the higher reaches continuing in Kashmir, the MeT department has predicted more wet weather for the state until February 24.

 “Many places in the state are likely to witness heavy snowfall and rainfall from February 19 to 24 due to western disturbance over J&K, which may trigger avalanches and landslides,” said a Met official.

“On February 19, sky is likely to remain partly cloudy with occurrence of rains and thunderstorm. From February 21 to 23, there is possibility of heavy snowfall and rains,” he said and added there will be significant decrease in day temperatures and slight rise in night temperature during this period.

Higher reaches of the valley including Sonamarg, Gagengir, Kullan, Zojila and Gund in Ganderbal district received fresh snowfall, reports said.
