Srinagar: The Meteorological (Met) department on Thursday said the weather in the valley is going to remain cold over the next one week even as the temperature has already slid to record low levels.
Deputy Director MeT, Mukhtar Ahmad, told The Kashmir Walla that the temperature in Srinagar is going to remain between minus 5 to minus 7.5 degrees Celsius.
He said that there will be a brief respite tomorrow due to cloud cover.
The cold wave gripped the Kashmir region with temperature falling to minus 10 to minus 12 degrees Celsius in parts of south and north Kashmir.
In Srinagar, the overnight temperature was recorded at minus 8.4 degree Celsius which was the coldest January night in the last 25 years.
The valley received heavy snowfall last week and remained disconnected with the rest of the world for days due to highway and airport shutdown.
