Srinagar, Dec 24 (IANS) The free fall of mercury continued in the Kashmir Valley Saturday with Srinagar recording a low of minus 3.3 degrees Celsius. The cold wave may persist for another week.

“Cold and dry weather will continue across the valley and Ladakh region for another seven days,” Sonam Lotus, director of the meteorological office, told IANS here.

“The night temperatures are likely to fall further. Kashmir would have to do with a snowless Christmas and New Year eve this season,” he said.

In the ski resort of Gulmarg, the minimum temperature was minus 11.6 degrees Celsius. Leh town was the coldest in the state - minus 15 degrees.
