Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday woke up to pleasant weather amid some chill as the minimum temperatures increased even as the weathermen forecast rain and snow for the next three days.

Officials at the MeT said that there is a likelihood of light to moderate rainfall and snow beginning from Monday.

“The spell is likely to be less severe than the previous one witnessed here on November 3.”
