Pahalgam, nestled in Jammu and Kashmir’s picturesque landscape, experienced its chilliest night of the winter season as temperatures plummeted to a bone-chilling -4.3°C. This popular tourist haven, along with Gulmarg, marked the lowest temperatures in the region at -4.3°C and -2.3°C, respectively, making them the coldest spots in Kashmir.

The Meteorological Department issued a forecast anticipating a further dip in night temperatures in the upcoming days. Srinagar reported a temperature of -1.4°C on Monday night, while Jammu marked a minimum of 9.9°C, underscoring the stark difference in weather conditions across the region. In Leh, located in Ladakh, the mercury dropped to a staggering -10°C.

The Meteorological Office warned of continuing cold nights for the next four to five days, with officials speculating the potential impact of an approaching Western Disturbance. Expected to arrive in Jammu and Kashmir the following week, this weather system might bring rain and snowfall to the region.

In the midst of these freezing conditions, concerns emerged as an avalanche struck the historical Mughal Road, prompting authorities to close the route. Efforts are actively underway to clear the road and mitigate any disruption caused by the avalanche.

As Kashmir grapples with these biting temperatures, residents and tourists alike brace themselves for the continuation of the cold spell, while authorities remain vigilant, closely monitoring weather patterns and preparing for potential snowfall and adverse weather conditions in the days ahead.
