Srinagar:  Heavy rain accompanied by gusty winds lashing Kashmir on Tuesday brought respite from the hot spell for the residents, bringing down the day temperature significantly.
Yesterday, the meteorological department declared a heat wave across Kashmir with Srinagar recording the season’s highest temperature of 34.4 degrees Celsius, 8.1 degrees above normal.
The MeT department had predicted no relief for the next few days from the scorching heat. The rain came as a pleasant surprise.
