Kashmir’s higher reaches received fresh snowfall on Monday while light rains lashed the plains including the summer capital Srinagar, even as the Mughal Road continued to remain closed for the second consecutive day. The Srinagar-Jammu highway was however open for one-way traffic.
An official source told Greater Kashmir that light snowfall was reported in high-altitude areas in Jammu and Kashmir, including Pir-ki-Gali on the Mughal Road, which connects Kashmir with Poonch via southern Shopian district. Snowfall was also reported at Sadhna Pass in Kupwara, Gurez Valley in Bandipora, Keran, Minamarg and some other places since Sunday night, he said. Plains, including Srinagar, also received light rains.
