Severe cold wave alert in many Indian states

The cold is severe in many places. Many Indian states are witnessing a drastic fall in temperatures. In this context, the Indian Metrological Department (IMD) predicted severe cold waves in many areas across the country.

Especially the northern parts of the country will be in the grip of severe cold for the next three days, as per the forecast.

As per the forecast of the IMD, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Rajasthan will see a major drop in temperature due to the cold wave.

Apart from these places, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal and Tripura will also be in the grip of severe cold conditions.

Most of these places will see a dense fog, as per the forecast. The light winds and high moisture near the surface over the Indo-Gangetic plains lead to the formation of dense fog. Besides, the temperature also dropped drastically, and most of the places had a temperature in the range of 2-6°C. The same weather conditions will prevail in these places for the next three days.

Cold wave conditions and dense fog situations will remain the same in many places. In some places like Bihar, very dense fog conditions will prevail for the next four days.

A dense fog covered Delhi and neighbouring areas. IMD issued Orange Alert in Delhi as the national capital recorded 2.2 degrees Celsius. It was the minimum recorded temperature in Safdarjung at around 5.30 am. In Lodhi Road in Delhi, the minimum recorded temperature was 2 Degrees Celsius.

The low visibility in Delhi affected the operations of many trains and flights. In many northern parts of India also, zero visibility was recorded. The minimum recorded temperature in the last 24 hours in some areas is as follows: It is 0 Degrees C in Churu, Rajasthan, 2.5 Degrees C in Gurugram, Haryana, and 4 Degrees C in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.
