Kashmir experiences heatwave conditions; Srinagar at 35.7 C is hotter than Kolkata, Delhi

Srinagar/IBNS: The serene valley of Kashmir, which attracts several tourists not just from India but also from abroad owing to its stunning scenery and refreshing air, is reeling under heatwave-like situations along with the rest of the country.

On Thursday, Srinagar recorded a maximum temperature of 35.7 degrees Celsius, six notches above normal and the highest in July in 25 years, media reports said.

The city had recorded a high of 37 degrees Celsius in July 1999.

Srinagar was hotter than Delhi (31.7 degrees Celsius), Kolkata (31 degrees Celsius), Mumbai (32 degrees Celsius) and Bengaluru (28 degrees Celsius).

The Valley has been experiencing rising temperatures and scorching heat over the past few weeks. This led to water shortage in many areas.

Bringing some relief, there is a possibility of intermittent moderate rainfall at many places and heavy spells at a few places in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday and Saturday, the weather office has predicted.
