Written by: Staff

Srinagar, July 23 (UNI) Night remained hot while temperature during the day was near normal in the Kashmir valley where water shortage and power curtailment affected normal life.

A spokesman of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) here told UNI that last night was the hottest of the season as the minimum temperature was recorded 22.7 degrees Celsius, five degrees above normal against yesterdays 20.7.

However, the maximum temperature was 30.7 degree degrees, which is just 0.7 degree above normal.

The spokesman predicted rainfall at a few places in the Kashmir valley, particularly on Baltal-Amarnath and Pahalgam-Amarnath routes where the two-month-long pilgrimage is going on since June 11.

He said the highest ever maximum temperature recorded in the state's summer capital during the past 80 years was 37.8 degrees Celsius on June 29, 1978.

People at several places alleged shortage of drinking water and curtailment in the power.
