Heavy to moderate snowfall from Dec 11
SRINAGAR, Dec 6: The meteorological department today said Kashmir will witness moderate to heavy snowfall from December 11 to December 15.

In a statement the MeT said, “A fresh Western disturbance is most likely to affect J&K from December 11 to 15 with moisture feeding taking place from the Arabian Sea.”

The statement added that under the influence of this system, moderate to heavy rain/snow is expected at widespread places of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh region.

“The main activity of this system (moderate to heavy rainfall/snowfall) is likely to occur during December 12 and 13 and gradual decrease thereafter. This will be the first major wet spell during the current season for J&K.”

Director MeT, Sonam Lotus said the weather system may lead to disruption of surface and air transportation like Srinagar-Leh, Srinagar-Jammu, and Mughal Road etc.

It will bring relief to farmers, especially who have sown Rabi crops in plains of Kashmir and Jammu region and overall improvement in soil moisture.

Hence farmers are advised not to irrigate the fields this week, it said.

Lotus issued a general warning for the state, saying higher reaches of Kashmir, Ladakh and hilly area of Jammu most likely to receive moderate to Heavy snowfall during this period.

"There will be significant fall in day temperature and slight rise in night temperature," he said.
