Jammu and Kashmir: Many parts of the Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday witnessed spells of rain and hailstorm, bringing respite from hot weather. The change came as a much-needed break from the rising temperature. Meanwhile, paddy crops were reported damaged in many parts of the Udhampur district.

The Zoji La pass also witnessed fresh snowfall near Sonamarg of Jammu and Kashmir. India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted thunderstorms accompanied with lightning and gusty wind at isolated places over Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh for today.

In Kohat, hails of a large size forced the people to park their vehicles under sheds and trees, as the falling hailstones created dents on the bonnets and windscreens of several cars.

The hailstones covered the main roads and streets in Kohat, Hangu and Orakzai districts and Thall and Darra Adamkhel areas. These areas also received heavy showers.

In Shangla, the first snowfall of the winter was also recorded in upper parts of the district on Sunday. Meanwhile, snowfall on mountains in Malakand and Hazara and light rain in the plain areas, including Peshawar, brought the mercury level down on Sunday, driving away the prolonged sweltering season.

According to the Met office, the minimum temperature was recorded at 5 degrees Celsius.
