These states in northwest India to remain in grip of cold wave till December 21

The head of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Saturday said that cold to severe cold wave conditions will continue to prevail over some parts of northwest India. IMD director general Mrutyunjay Mohapatra told news agency ANI that the night temperatures in Punjab, Haryana, north Rajasthan, and some parts of western Uttar Pradesh and northern Madhya Pradesh were below normal and such conditions will continue to prevail till December 21.

“Thereafter the minimum temperatures are expected to slightly rise further & hence abetting the cold wave conditions,” ANI quoted IMD head as saying.

Mohapatra noted that the day temperature over northwest India is “markedly below normal”, highlighting the added “adverse impact of below normal day temperature to prevailing cold wave conditions” in the region. He said the day temperature is expected to continue in the below normal category up to December 21.

The fall in temperature in central and northwest India is due to snowfall in Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, a senior IMD official said on Friday. Senior IMD meteorologist PK Saha told news agency PTI that a gradual decline in minimum temperatures by 3 degrees Celsius to 5 degrees Celsius can be expected over most parts of central India in the next four days.

“Mercury is going to dip from tomorrow onward in MP. Snowfall in Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir is bringing cool winds to MP. Shallow to moderate fog is likely to engulf isolated places in 19 MP districts, including Bhopal, Gwalior and Ujjain, on Saturday morning," PTI quoted Saha as saying.

"The minimum temperature is likely to go below 10 degrees Celsius in large parts of the district in the next few days. Both maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to fall in MP," he added.
