Srinagar records lowest June temperature in nearly half century


Jammu and Kashmir’s Srinagar city on Tuesday recorded maximum of 15 degrees Celsius – the coldest June temperature in nearly a half century.

A Met department official said that Srinagar city’s maximum temperature was the coldest June day temperature since 1975.

“Tuesday’s maximum temperature is 14.2 degrees below normal. A temperature of 15 degrees Celsius is very common in February in Srinagar,” the official said.

Higher reaches in J&K and Ladakh have received fresh snowfall during the last 3 days. Chilly wind blowing into the Valley from snow-clad mountains has pushed the temperature down in the hinterland.

Weather office has forecast improvement from Wednesday afternoon onwards.
