Srinagar: The free fall of mercury continued across the Kashmir Valley on Saturday with Srinagar recording a low of 3.3 degrees Celsius. The Met office has forecast similar weather conditions for another week.

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

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

In the North Kashmir ski resort of Gulmarg, the minimum temperature was minus 11.6 degrees Celsius.

Leh town was the coldest in the state at minus 15 degrees.
