With moderate rain seen at J&K, the MeT office said on Friday the weather would improve from Saturday as there are no major weather events forecast until next week.

Kashmir recorded rains on Thursday while Friday brought showers to some places. Upper parts of Kashmir witnessed light snowfall, lowering daytime and nighttime temperatures.

“Widespread light to moderate rain/thunderstorms, hail in some locations, and snowfall on higher reaches have occurred over the past two days at J&K. Weather is more likely to remain cloudy in most parts of J&K with intermittent light rain/snowfall on higher reaches. Expect a gradual improvement from tonight,” the MeT office said in a statement, adding that overall no major rain was expected next week. “An occasional short period of rain with thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.”

The valley had been rocked by hot, dry weather with temperatures hovering between 8 and 10 degrees above normal in March and April.

The deficiency was due to the absence of any strong westerly disturbance or winds blowing in from the Mediterranean bringing moisture. The cities of Jammu and Srinagar have also been largely dry this year, although the phenomenon was not new.

Srinagar recorded 10.3mm of rainfall in the past 24 hours and recorded a temperature of 8.6 degrees Celsius.

The tourist resort of Gulmarg recorded 15.4mm of rainfall and sub-zero temperatures were seen overnight.

The winter as well as the spring of this year especially recorded relatively less precipitation.

During the last week of February, the valley had experienced a period of generalization. The latest wave of rain was welcomed by fruit growers who were worried about the lack of rain and snow in the past two months which had led to early flowering in their orchards.
