While five persons each died in Deoria and Maharajganj, four deaths each were reported from Siddharth Nagar and Bhadoi, two each from Pratapgarh, Kushinagar, Basti, Jaunpur and Ghazipur and one each from Lucknow, Sitapur and Muzaffarnagar, taking the toll to 141 in Uttar Pradesh this winter, official sources said in Lucknow.

With let up in snow and rains, night temperature improved in Jammu and Kashmir barring Ladakh region where mercury dipped to minus 18 degrees Celsius in Leh and minus 16.8 deg C in Kargil district. The minimum temperature in Srinagar this morning was 2 deg C, four degrees above normal.

Pahalgam, a hill resort of south Kashmir, recorded a low of minus 2.9 deg C today.
