Heavy snowfall has already started in Sonamarg and at the ski resort of Gulmarg since Wednesday morning while heavy rains lashed the valley earlier. Locals have taken out their winter clothing as most Kashmiris wore the traditional 'Pheren' (tweed over garment) in the valley. 

A weather advisory issued by the local Met department has forecast heavy to very heavy snowfall in the higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir with heavy rainfall in the plains during the next three days.

Last year too, Kashmir witnessed snowfall in November. Normally, snowfall begins after November on the upper reaches of Kashmir. The 40-day peak winter season called 'Chila-e-Kalan' begins from December 20.
