Weather Update: Western Disturbance Brings Rain and Snow to Jammu and Kashmir

A moderate intensity western disturbance is currently impacting parts of Jammu and Kashmir, influencing the region’s weather patterns. Under the influence of this weather system, light to moderate rain accompanied by gusty winds and thunderstorms is anticipated in the plains of J&K over the next 24 hours.

In addition to rainfall, moderate to heavy snowfall is forecasted for higher reaches. Popular tourist destinations such as Gulmarg, Sonamarg, and Doodhpatri are expected to experience snowfall. Snowfall accumulations in the higher reaches may range from 1 to 3 feet, with Gulmarg and Sonamarg likely to receive around 1 foot of fresh snowfall within the next 24 hours.

Residents and travelers in the affected areas are advised to exercise caution and take necessary precautions due to the expected adverse weather conditions. Road travel and outdoor activities may be impacted by the rain and snowfall, potentially leading to difficult driving conditions and limited visibility.

However, there is a silver lining on the horizon as weather conditions are expected to improve from the afternoon of March 14th onwards across Jammu and Kashmir. The decrease in precipitation and the clearing of skies will likely bring relief to the region, allowing for better visibility and safer travel conditions.

Authorities are closely monitoring the situation and providing updates to the public as necessary. It is recommended for residents and visitors to stay informed about the latest weather forecasts and advisories issued by local authorities to ensure their safety and well-being during this period of inclement weather.
