New Delhi, January 8
After fairly warm weather conditions in the past few days, cold wave conditions are set to return with a gradual fall in temperatures over the next four to five days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said today.
“Due to the prevailing northwesterly winds over most parts of northwest India, minimum temperature will fall gradually by 3-5°C during the next four to five days, leading to cold wave conditions in Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana and north Rajasthan on January 11-12,” the weather office said.
Due to western disturbance, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad are witnessing scattered rain/snow and isolated rain/thundershower over Haryana, northeast Rajasthan and west Uttar Pradesh.
Dense to very dense fog is very likely at isolated pockets over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and west Uttar Pradesh and dense fog over Delhi, east Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and northwest Madhya Pradesh in the morning hours over the weekend.
