Shallow water bodies at many places on the outskirts of Srinagar had a thin crust of ice in the morning as the night temperature had dipped to below freezing point.
The official predicted that the next 48 hours till Friday morning in Srinagar and surrounding areas would be dry, even though there was possibility of light rain at some places in the higher reaches of the Valley.
"This means we should expect further drop in the night temperatures during the next two to three days," the official said.
