Deep Freeze Grips Kashmir: Record-Low Temperatures Hit Valley, Cold Wave Persists

On Monday, the frigid conditions in Kashmir escalated with temperatures dropping below freezing points across most areas in the valley, as reported by officials. Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, experienced a low of minus 0.4 degrees Celsius, according to the weather office.

Pahalgam in south Kashmir, serving as the base camp for the annual Amarnath yatra, witnessed the lowest temperature in the valley last night. Plunging from minus 3.5 degrees Celsius the previous night, it reached a low of minus 11.9 degrees Celsius.

Gulmarg in north Kashmir experienced a temperature drop of three notches, reaching minus 10 degrees Celsius from the previous night’s minus 7 degrees Celsius.

In south Kashmir, Kokernag and Qazigund towns recorded lows of minus 1.4 degrees Celsius and minus 3.3 degrees Celsius, respectively, according to officials.

The Meteorological Department forecasts an improvement in the weather in Kashmir starting Tuesday. Despite the conclusion of the 40-day harshest winter period known as ‘Chilla-i-Kalan’ earlier this week, the cold wave persists in the region. Presently, the valley is undergoing a 20-day ‘Chilla-i-Khurd’ (small cold), which will be succeeded by a 10-day ‘Chilla-i-Bachha’ (baby cold).
