The meteorological department has forecast that the weather will remain mostly dry over the state during the next four days.

At 2 PM, the Jhelum river was flowing at 15.50 feet at Sangam in south Kashmir -- nearly eight feet below the danger mark, while the water-level at Ram Munshi Bagh in the city was 15.80 feet, an official of the Flood Control Department said.

With Meteorological department predicting mostly dry weather during the next four days, most of the government and private schools reopened today after remaining closed due to the inclement weather and looming threat of floods.

However, light to moderate rain or thundershowers would occur at some places during the next 24 hours.

Heavy rains, which started lashing Srinagar and other parts of the Valley last night, stopped around Friday forenoon  and there was no major change in the water level in the Jhelum river which started receding on Wednesday after crossing the danger mark the previous day.
