Record Cold and Snow

Jammu and Kashmir receives almost 180% (6+6+6) excess rain in October, November – Kashmir’s heaviest November snow in 40 years. Videos. Six (6) districts affected. Five (5) districts with 500% (5) or greater increases. Videos.

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up  to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period

… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).

… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)

… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)

… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) received 188 mm (7 inches) of precipitation during October and November 2019, making it almost 180% (6+6+6) above usual. On November 6 and 7 this year, Kashmir also saw its heaviest November snow in four decades. According to the MeT Department, summer capital Srinagar registered 228 mm (9 inches, 3×3) rain and snowfall during the same period, which was almost 700% (7) higher than normal precipitation. 

1. Pulwama was the second wettest district with 618% excess precipitation. 2. Kulgam, on the other hand, received excess rainfall of 587%. Similarly, 3. Baramulla received 544% higher, 4. Anantnag 504%, 5. Budgam 471%, and 6. Bandipora 341% above normal precipitation registered in November 2019.

The wettest districts in the Jammu division were Rajouri with 409% excess rain, and Raesi with 358%.

“Interaction of cold winds blowing southwards from [the[ polar region with the western disturbances led to very heavy precipitation in [the] form of recent snowfall across Kashmir. The scenario is likely to prolong during [the] current winter season,” said MeT officials.

This year, Kashmir also registered its heaviest snow in November in around 40 years. Snowfall records of past four decades– monitored by the Meteorological Department– showed that 9.6 cm (4 inches) equivalent snowfall was recorded between November 6 and 7 in Srinagar is the heaviest 24-hour snowfall recorded in November since 1980. This has resulted in some of the most extreme cold days across the Valley to date.

“Almost every western disturbance that passed led to heavy rainfall or snowfall in the Valley during November,” said a MeT official.

The untimely snowfall on November 7 was due to the presence of Cyclone “Maha” in the Arabian sea, plus the wind interaction with the western disturbances.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), however, has forecasted that northern portions of the country including Jammu and Kashmir will see a normal winter, as minimum temperatures will stay within the normal range. IMD’s weather forecast issued on Friday, November 29, showed the seasonal temperature outlook from December 2019 to February 2020.

While the town of Gulmarg recorded 1.39 m (4.5 feet) of snow on November 7, the plains received 30 to 60 cm (1 to 2 feet) of snow on the said day, according to MeT data.

There were only two days when major snowfall was witnessed, but it surpassed the monthly average snowfall,” the MeT officials said.

The snowfall on November 7, followed by cold weather, had caused several landslides on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, resulting in frequent road closures. The road is the only all-weather road, linking the Valley to the rest of the world, and it remained closed for traffic for over 12 (6+6) days in November.

Moreover, the untimely snowfall led to over 60 (6) flights canceled from Srinagar International Airport in November. The heavy snowfall also wreaked havoc on the 8,000 (8) rupee core horticulture sector, with initial estimates suggesting 2,500 (5×5) rupee core losses suffered to the apple industry.
