Tribune News Service and Agencies

Chandigarh, January 17
Higher reaches in Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh reported fresh spells of snow since early today while foggy conditions continued in Punjab and Haryana, disrupting life.

The Snow and Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE) has issued a fresh medium-danger avalanche warning in the snowbound areas of Gulmarg, Uri, Keran, Machhal, Bandipur-Gurez and Dras sectors, and Naugam-Kyain and Chaukiwal-Tangdhar for the next 24 hours.

Meanwhile, Chandigarh and the surrounding areas were lashed by winds with a velocity of over 50 km/hr.

Heavy fog in Pathankot, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Bathinda, Chandigarh, Ambala, Karnal, Sirsa and Hisar, threw rail, road and air services out of gear again today.

As the visibility was reduced to 300 metres, trains services, ran an hour-and-a-half to five-and-a-half hours behind schedule. Vehicular traffic, too, moved at a snail's pace.

The Mumbai-Delhi-Chandigarh Indian Airlines and Delhi-Chandigarh Jet Airways flights landed here about an hour behind schedule.

SRINAGAR: Most parts of the Kashmir valley witnessed heavy rain and snow.

According to reports reaching here, it was snowing heavily in the upper reaches of Banihal on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway. Bad weather conditions prevailed in the area since Friday night when it started raining throughout the valley.

There was heavy snow in Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Sonmarg. The snow is a good sign for the forthcoming national winter games beginning at Gulmarg from January 28.

A thick blanket of snow covered parts of Central and North Kashmir on Saturday afternoon, while it had started snowing in South Kashmir by the evening.

SHIMLA: High-altitute tribal regions of Himachal Pradesh experienced heavy snow while the adjoining areas were lashed by rain, intensifying the cold wave sweeping the state.

The Rohtang Pass, the Kunzam Pass, the Chansel Pass, the Saach Pass and tribal valleys of Lahaul, Spiti and Pangi experienced intermittent snow since Friday night, met reports said here, adding that the minimum temperature. In the tribal areas stayed between minus 12 and minus 24C.

The Dhauladhar ranges experienced the heaviest snowfall of the season while Dharamsala, Palampur, Kangra and other lower areas received widespread rain. The rain broke the six-week-long dry spell in the Kangra region and brought cheer to farmers.

Shimla and the surrounding areas were lashed by high velocity icy winds and the sky remained heavily overcast, causing a sharp fall in the day temperature.
