Rain, snowfall predicted in Kashmir Valley

The prevalent dry weather in Kashmir is likely to end as the Meteorological Department here has predicted rain or snowfall for few days in the coming week.
There are chances of isolated rains in the Valley over two days from January 26, while there is possibility of scattered to widespread rainfall or snowfall over three days from January 28, an official of the Meteorological department here said.
He said there is a chance of snowfall in the region especially in the higher reaches of the Valley during this period especially at the end of the month which would coincide with the culmination of Chillai-Kalan.
Chillai-Kalan, which began on December 21 and ends on January 31, is the period of winter when the chances of snowfall are usually most frequent and maximum.
However, more than a month into Chillai-Kalan, Kashmir continues to experience dry weather.
Except for brief spells of light snow in plains on two occasions and moderate snowfall in the higher reaches on a few occasions, the harshest winter period has thus far remained largely dry.
