Kashmir Valley receives fresh snowfall in higher hills

Srinagar : High altitude areas of Kashmir Valley, including the famous ski resort of Gulmarg, on Wednesday experienced fresh snowfall which ended over a month-long dry spell. 

Moderate to heavy snowing occurred in high altitude areas, including scenic Gulmarg and Sonamarg, officials said.  It was still snowing, they said adding the snowfall had ended over a month-long dry spell in higher hills. 

However, the plains, including summer capital Srinagar, continued to witness dry weather with the minimum temperature hovering around zero degree Celsius. 

Gulmarg and other higher hills had recorded the first snowfall of the season at the fag end of October. Mercury touched season's lowest in Srinagar last week when it slipped three degrees below freezing point. 

The cloud cover over the area, however, provided respite to the denizens from the cold as mercury rose and settled a few degrees above freezing point for several days before plummeting again three days back.
