J&K Night Temperatures Rise, Weather to Stay Calm Until

The Meteorological Department has forecasted a temporary relief from significant weather activity in Jammu and Kashmir until March 27. Despite this prediction, there has been a noticeable rise in night temperatures across the region. Srinagar, the summer capital, recorded a minimum temperature of 10.2°C, which is 5.2°C above normal for this time of year. Other areas such as Qazigund, Pahalgam, Kokernag, and Kupwara also experienced above-normal temperatures.

Pahalgam, a famous resort in south Kashmir, saw its temperature rise to 3.6°C, a significant increase from the previous night’s sub-zero temperature of minus 1.1°C. Similarly, Gulmarg, renowned for its skiing activities, recorded a minimum temperature of 1.4°C, marking a noticeable ascent from the previous night’s minus 2.5°C. These deviations from the norm suggest a shift in the region’s weather patterns.

Meanwhile, Jammu, the winter capital of J&K, saw its temperature settle at 17.2°C, exceeding the normal by 1.7°C. Other towns like Banihal, Batote, and Bhaderwah also experienced relatively warmer nights. Despite the rise in temperatures, the Meteorological Department anticipates mainly dry weather with the possibility of very light rain or thunderstorms in some higher reaches of the region over the next 24 hours.

Looking ahead, the forecast indicates generally cloudy weather with light rain or snow in many places from March 27 evening to March 28. Subsequently, from March 29 onwards, partly cloudy weather with light rain or snow is expected at isolated locations.

The forecast extends to March 30-31, predicting partly to generally cloudy weather with intermittent light rain or snow in a few places. Overall, while the immediate future suggests a respite from significant weather events, the region remains subject to fluctuations in weather conditions.
