A brief respite is anticipated from May 1 to 5, with generally dry weather forecasted.

However, concerns persist over fluctuating temperatures, with Srinagar recording a minimum of 10.5 degrees Celsius, Qazigund 8.4 degrees Celsius, Pahalgam 6.3 degrees Celsius, Kokernag 7.9 degrees Celsius, Kupwara 8.1 degrees Celsius, Gulmarg 2.4 degrees Celsius, Jammu 19.3 degrees Celsius, Banihal 10.2 degrees Celsius, Batote 9.7 degrees Celsius, and Bhaderwah 9.8 degrees Celsius.

The relentless rainfall has led to water logging in many areas, disrupting normal life and posing challenges for residents.

There are also fears of flooding and landslides, especially in low-lying and hilly areas.

The authorities have advised caution and urged people to stay indoors during heavy downpours.



Heavy rainfall is expected at most places in Jammu and Kashmir during the next 48 hours.

The main impact of this weather system would be seen up to April 29 evening and during this period few places in Kashmir and Jammu can see very heavy rainfall.

During the next 48 hours, moderate to heavy snowfall is expected over the higher reaches like Sonamarg, Gulmarg Affarwat, Razdan Pass, Zojila Pass, Sinthan Top, Sadhana Pass, Peer Ki Gali, and Gurez Valley.
