Coldest month since 1995

This has been the coldest winter since 1995 as far as the month of January is concerned but there is going to be a little bit respite from the continuous rains and snowfall till the 23rd of this month as predicted by the Meteorological department.

In comparison with last year from January 13 onwards, the mercury is witnessing a slight downward trend this year both in maximum and minimum temperatures. On January 14, 2010, the minimum temperature was 9.5 degrees Celsius, while the minimum temperature this year on January 14 dipped to 5.9 degrees Celsius. Moreover, the maximum temperature during the same period from January 13 onwards in comparison with last year is also on the lower side by a few degrees.

The Meteorological department has predicted that for the next four- five days, the day temperature may rise marginally but there will be a further dip in the minimum temperature.

For the next 4-5 days, it will be sunny in the Ladakh region but Jammu and Kashmir regions will remain cloudy.
