Sunlight breaks through clouds after heavy rainfall in Jammu and Kashmir.

Srinagar, Mar 3 (WD): Following days of incessant rain and snowfall, the sun finally made its appearance on Sunday across Jammu and Kashmir. However, the respite from precipitation was accompanied by a notable drop in night temperatures, with Gulmarg plummeting to a chilling minus 10.6°C.

According to a meteorological department official, Srinagar recorded 38.9mm of rain in the 24 hours leading up to 0830 hours today. Similarly, Qazigund witnessed 81mm of rainfall, while Pahalgam and Kupwara experienced 39.5mm and 44.5mm of precipitation respectively, with the latter also receiving 9 cms of snowfall. Other regions, including Kokernag, Jammu, Batote, Katra, and Bhaderwah, also reported significant rainfall.

Despite the sun’s appearance, night temperatures across the region experienced a decline. Srinagar recorded a minimum temperature of minus 0.6°C, marking a drop from the previous night’s 2.0°C. Notably, Gulmarg’s temperature plummeted to minus 10.6°C, significantly below normal for this time of year.

While some areas witnessed above-normal temperatures, such as Jammu, which recorded a minimum of 9.2°C, the overall trend reflected a notable decrease in night temperatures across Jammu and Kashmir.

Banihal, Batote, and Bhaderwah recorded relatively milder temperatures compared to other regions, with lows ranging from 0.5°C to 1.6°C.

The emergence of the sun brings hope of respite from the recent inclement weather, although the significant drop in night temperatures serves as a reminder of the lingering winter chill in the region.
