Fresh snowfall in most places of Kashmir brought down visibility to 500 meters, affecting air traffic to and from the Valley on Wednesday.

Light to moderate snowfall was recorded at most places of Kashmir while the higher reaches witnessed heavy snowfall. The weather department has predicted that the intensity of precipitation will decrease as the day progresses.

All flights at the Srinagar airport were delayed. Although snow accumulation was not much at the airport, low visibility — which was down to 500 meters — affected flight operations, officials said.

Meanwhile, the minimum temperatures improved across the Valley.

According to the traffic department, there were some incidents of shooting stones amid rains at some places along the Srinagar-Jammu national highway, but the traffic was through. (PTI)
