Weather Update – Jan 30th to Feb 1st:

A new Western Disturbance is poised to affect Jammu and Kashmir until February 1st. Anticipate rain/snow starting this morning, primarily in higher elevations. By evening, areas like Udhampur, Kishtwar, and Doda districts may experience rain in the Jammu region.

By the morning of Jan 31st, most areas in Jammu and Kashmir should witness rain/snow. Throughout the day, rain/snow activities will persist, with central and south Kashmir experiencing fewer occurrences during the daytime.

Temperatures are expected to drop significantly on the evening of Jan 31st, increasing the likelihood of snowfall in plains. From Jan 31st evening to Feb 1st, Jammu region may see moderate to heavy rain/snow, especially in higher reaches, potentially depositing 2 to 5 feet of snow over Sinthan Pass.

Lightning and thunderstorms are possible in parts of Jammu region during this period. Remain vigilant! In south Kashmir plains (Shopian, Kulgam, Anantnag districts), snowfall is likely from Jan 31st to Feb 1st, with variations in snow accumulations.

In central Kashmir, there’s a chance of snowfall, but the impact will be comparatively lower. Similar uncertainties surround the plains of north Kashmir.

Expect substantial snowfall in tourist destinations like Gulmarg, Sonamarg, Pahalgam, and Doodhpathri. Dry weather is anticipated from Feb 2nd onwards.

Feb 3rd – 4th:

Another Western Disturbance (light to moderate) is projected to influence the region from Feb 3rd afternoon/evening, bringing colder temperatures and the possibility of light to moderate snowfall in the plains of Kashmir. Further details will be shared later.


  1. Weather conditions may deviate from forecasts, potentially resulting in more rain/snow in central Kashmir than south Kashmir.
  2. Landslides/shooting stones are expected on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway. Consider postponing your journey, especially if planned for Feb 1st.
  3. For tourists, Sinthan Pass may remain closed for several days. Plan alternative destinations like Sonamarg, Pahalgam, or Gulmarg to experience snow.
