Srinagar, Dec 31: A big snowfall and rains are likely to occur across Jammu & Kashmir starting January 2, Wednesday morning.

A large Western Disturbance is likely to result in snowfall almost simultaneously Wednesday morning spanning from Tajikistan, northern Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan, Gilgit Baltistan, Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand, according to varied weather data analysed by Ziraat Times.

During this spell, snowfall is likely across Kashmir valley, Kargil, Zanaskar valley and mountainous parts of Ladakh, and mountains of Jammu province, according to Ziraat Times analysis. Parts of Jammu plains would experience rainfall.

While precipitation-bearing clouds look to recede from most parts of J&K on Thursday, a much larger cloud cover is likely to engulf Jammu & Kashmir and its north-western region starting Friday, causing snowfall across Kashmir valley plains, Kishtwar, Bhaderwah, Doda, Ramban, Reasi and Udhampur mountains and most of the Ladakh region, Ziraat Times forecast suggests.

Heavy snowfall is likely across Pirpanjal and the entire Upper and Middle Himalayas, with significant drop in daytime temperates.

During this period snowfall is also likely across Himachal Pradesh.
