Srinagar: The mercury slipped further in Kashmir on Tuesday as cold wave conditions persisted in the Valley, with Srinagar recording its coldest night of the season at minus 2.3 degrees Celsius, meteorological department officials said.
Kashmir has been experiencing sub-zero temperatures for the past few nights and in most places, the mercury has remained two to three notches below the normal for this part of the season, they said.
Pahalgam, which serves as the base camp for the annual Amarnath Yatra, recorded a low of minus 4.4 degrees Celsius last night. It was the coldest recorded place in Kashmir, the officials said.
