Posted by admin on 25th December 2018

Jammu: Residents of Jammu woke up to a chilly morning Tuesday as the night temperature had plunged to 4.1 degrees Celsius the season’s lowest so far.

Dal lake partially froze on Tuesday, a day after Jammu-Kashmir’s capital city Srinagar recorded its coldest night in 11 years with temperatures plunging to minus 6.8C. Despite temperatures settling at minus 5.5C, the cold wave resulted in frozen water bodies and water supply lines in several residential areas

Kashmir is currently under the grip of ‘Chillai-Kalan’ — the harshest period of winter when chances of snowfall are maximum and the temperature drops considerably.
