Srinagar records coldest night after 30 years at -8.8 °C

Jan 31, 2021 15:00 IST

Srinagar recorded the coldest night after 30 years, as the temperature plummeted to minus 8.8 degrees Celsius on Sunday. Officials of the meteorological department said the maximum temperature was 2 degrees Celsius in Srinagar on Saturday which is also the lowest maximum recorded this season. In 1991 the minimum temperature recorded was minus 11.8 in Srinagar.
The 40-day long period of harsh winter cold known locally as the 'Chillai Kalan' ends on Sunday, but not without leaving an indelible mark in the record books for ushering in one of Kashmir's coldest winters in living memory.
