Heavy snowfall hits India’s Himalayan states

India's Himalayan states of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir were hit by heavy snowfall on Saturday (November 3), leading to road closures and flight cancellations, according to local media.

The unseasonal snowfall cut off the Kashmir valley and led to the closure of the Srinagar-Jammu national highway, local media reported.

The northern city of Srinagar, in Jammu and Kashmir, typically sees its first snowfall much later, usually between the months of December and February.

Snowfall in Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh has a direct impact on temperatures in lower northern states of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Indian capital New Delhi.
