Ratti Gali, a tourist spot of Neelum Valley in Azad Jammu Kashmir, has received around three-inch snowfall that blanketed the valley hills on Tuesday disturbing the routine life, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

A large number of tourists are present at the base camp as they wanted to go to the lake in the area. 

The latest snowfall has turned the weather chilled in the valley. 

The district administration has advised tourists not to go to the lake as the road has become slippery which may cause any untoward incident. 

Met Office already forecasted that heavy falls may trigger landsliding in vulnerable areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Galyat, Kashmir, and Gilgit Baltistan during the next 36 hours. 

Heavy falls may generate flash flooding in local Nullahs/Rivers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan and Northeast Balochistan.

Heavy downpour may cause urban flooding in Peshawar, Mardan, Nowshera, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Faisalabad, Gujranwala and Lahore. Windstorms may damage loose structures in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan.

Also, rain-windstorm/thundershower is expected in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, upper/central Punjab, Islamabad, Gilgit Baltistan on Wednesday and Kashmir during daytime. Hot and dry weather is expected elsewhere in the country.
