Season's coldest night in Srinagar
GULMARG FREEZES AT -5.2
Srinagar, Dec 10: Cold wave further tightened its grip in Srinagar as the season's low of minus 3.8 degrees Celsius was recorded in the state’s summer capital Friday, a MET office spokesman said.
The dip in the night temperature in the Valley and frontier region of Ladakh had also led to the freezing of almost all water bodies in the high altitude areas and led to the suspension of traffic.
The famous ski resort of Gulmarg, 55 kms from here, in north Kashmir was the coldest place in the Valley, with a minimum of minus 5.2 degrees Celsius, the spokesman said.
Pahalgam hill resort in south Kashmir also recorded the season's low of minus 5.0, he said.
However, the frontier region of Ladakh continued to be the coldest place in the state with a minimum of minus 15.0 degrees Celsius.
