No forecast of heavy rainfall for next 2 weeks: MeT office

The meteorological department  said there won’t be “continuous or heavy rainfall” for a week from 19 July in Kashmir, though active monsoon may cause thundershowers during next week.

“There is no such forecast that suggests that there will be continuous rainfall from 19th to 25th in Kashmir,” director, MeT department, Sonam Lotus said in a facebook post that he said was issued “in public interest”.

“Since monsoon is active over J&K, there is forecast of frequent shower especially in Jammu region during next one week,” he said.

“There will be rain/thundershower in many parts of Kashmir and in some parts of Ladakh region as well and it is normal. We are monitoring it very closely on 24×7 basis as usual.”

The MeT director said in case of any such forecast, the administration and the people will be informed well in time.
