SRINAGAR: The wet weather is likely to persist in J&K during the next two days under the influence of a western disturbance active in the region.
Officials at the Meteorology Department said that the intensity of the rains will decrease after April 21 as the western disturbance will move away eastwards. However, isolated pockets would get some rainfall activity due to its remnants.
Rains for the past several days have been occurring due to successive western disturbance approaching the western Himalayas.
On Thursday, the upper reaches of Gulmarg in northern Kashmir and other heights in the Valley received fresh snow while intermittent rains continued for the fourth successive day in the plains in Kashmir.
Although night temperatures witnessed improvement due to the overcast conditions, the mercury remained below normal during the day.
“Moderate rain and thundershowers would occur at many places during the subsequent two days from Friday,” the Met official said, adding that the weather will improve from Saturday onwards.
