Kashmir Valley received a second spell of snowfall and rains since Saturday night, as power supply was affected at many parts of the region in Jammu and Kashmir.

The overnight snow and rains caused water-logging in several areas of Srinagar and the city recorded a minimum temperature of minus 0.7 degrees.

A MeT department official said that the Valley is likely to experience “light to moderate” rains and snow on Monday as well.

The Srinagar-Jammu national highway remained closed for traffic for the third consecutive day following landslides in some areas on the route.

The famous ski-resort of Gulmarg in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district shivered at minus 3.4 degrees and received 11 inches of fresh snowfall in this spell, the MeT official added.
