MeT Predicts Light rain, Gusty winds in Kashmir Till

The Meteorological Department has forecasted light rain, thunder, and gusty winds for many places in the Kashmir Valley and a few locations in the Jammu region until June 21. This weather pattern is expected to continue over the next couple of days, bringing a mix of conditions to these areas.

From June 22 to 23, there is a possibility of light rain and thunder at isolated places, according to a meteorological department official. This indicates a brief continuation of unsettled weather before a shift to drier conditions.

From June 24 to 27, generally dry weather is expected, though the possibility of light rain and thunder at isolated places cannot be ruled out. This suggests a period of relative stability in the weather, with occasional disturbances.

A significant change in weather is expected in the plains of Jammu, where a heat wave is likely from June 22. This marks a notable shift from the current weather patterns and indicates the onset of high temperatures.

Regarding recent temperatures, Srinagar recorded a low of 13.7°C, which is 2.1°C below normal for this time of year. This reflects a cooler-than-usual night for the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.

Qazigund recorded a minimum temperature of 13.6°C, which is 0.8°C below normal. Similarly, Pahalgam, a popular resort in south Kashmir, recorded a low of 10.7°C, 1.1°C below normal.
