Early Times Report

Srinagar, Jan 12: The air traffic to and fro Srinagar airport was restored Saturday afternoon after it was hit by poor visibility in the morning due to snowfall, officials said. "The flight operations at Srinagar airport resumed in the afternoon after disruption in the morning," an official of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) said here.
He said the air traffic was disrupted in the morning because of low visibility due to snowfall.
"After the initial cancellation in the morning, the visibility improved in the afternoon as the weather improved and the flight operations resumed," the official said. He said eight flights were cancelled Saturday out of a total of 28 flights scheduled for the day. Some of the flights were also delayed, the official added.
The Met office has said there is a possibility of light rain and snow in many places, with heavy falls at isolated places, in the state on Saturday. It said the weather is likely to improve on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the minimum temperature at Srinagar settled at minus 0.8 degrees Celsius last night - slightly up from the previous night's low of minus 1 degree Celsius, the official of the Met office said. He said Qazigund - the gateway town to the valley - in south Kashmir also recorded a low of minus 0.8 degree Celsius, while the nearby Kokernag town registered a low of minus 2.4 degrees Celsius last night. The mercury in Kupwara town in north Kashmir settled at a low of 0.2 degree Celsius, the official said, adding Kupwara was the only place in Kashmir where the night temperature settled above the freezing point. Gulmarg ski-resort in north Kashmir recorded a low of minus 6.0 degrees Celsius last night, while Pahalgam tourist resort registered a low of minus 4.5 degrees Celsius.
The official said Leh recorded a low of minus 11.9 degrees Celsius last night, while the mercury in Drass settled at a low of minus 10.3 degrees Celsius and Kargil experienced the minimum of minus 16.8 degrees Celsius.
Kargil was the coldest recorded place in Jammu and Kashmir.
Kashmir is currently under the grip of 'Chillai-Kalan' - the 40-day harshest period of winter when the chances of snowfall are most frequent and maximum and the temperature drops considerably. 'Chillai-Kalan' ends on January 31, but the cold wave continues even after that in Kashmir. The 40-day period is followed by a 20-day long 'Chillai-Khurd' (small cold) and a 10-day long 'Chillai-Bachha' (baby cold).
