RK Jenamani, an IMD scientist stated on Tuesday that the lowest temperature in Delhi has begun to fall again and might reach six degrees Celsius by Saturday.

On Tuesday, maximum temperatures were "significantly below average (-5.0 degrees or less)" in most parts of west Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha, a few parts of Haryana, Chandigarh, east Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Delhi and a few parts of Odisha.
