Snowfall in Jammu’s high-altitude areas

Jammu: The Mughal Road remained closed for vehicular traffic for the second day today as high-altitude areas continue to witness snowfall, resulting in a marked dip in night temperature across Jammu region, officials said.

However, day temperature, which plunged six degrees below normal on Friday, registered an improvement with the sun coming out after remaining hidden for the past couple of days.

The Mughal Road, the alternative link between Kashmir and rest of the country, was closed yesterday after the season’s first heavy snowfall in higher reaches of Jammu region.

The minimum temperature in Jammu fell by 1.7 degree Celsius to settle at 9.5 degrees Celsius three notches below normal, an MeT office spokesperson said.
