Srinagar, Feb 20 : As weather remained cloudy throughout the day, the weatherman on Wednesday predicted rains and snow till Thursday afternoon, saying that Jammu would receive moderate rains besides hailstorm.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Deputy Director of Meteorological department (MeT), Mukhtar Ahmad said, “There is possibility of light rains in plains of Kashmir from this evening while as hilly areas would receive another snowfall.”
He added moderate rains would also lash Jammu region while there is possibility of hailstorm in the region as well.

However, MeT Deputy Director informed that weather would significantly improve from Thursday afternoon. “The weather would remain dry till next few days from Thursday afternoon,” he said.
Meanwhile, the overnight rains triggered landslides on Srinagar-Jammu highway following which authorities had halted the traffic movement on 300 km long stretch.
“At few places in Ramsoo-Ramban sector, landslides occurred on Sgr-Jmu highway triggered by fresh rains in the intervening night of Tuesday-Wednesday,” officials said.
The traffic as per officials was temporarily halted as ‘a precautionary measure’.
They said traffic on the highway will be allowed after the road is cleared. (KNS)
