Cold wave continues in the plains after snowfall in the mountains. After 2 days of relief, the Meteorological Department has issued an alert and predicted a cold wave in Delhi from December 23 to December 26. There is also a possibility of dense fog. This morning the minimum temperature in Delhi's Lodhi Road was 3.7 degrees Celsius. Meteorological Department Kuldeep Srivastava said that the temperature is expected to be 3-4 degrees in the coming days. Many parts of North India are vulnerable to cold wave and in many places the minimum temperature has been recorded below 5 degree Celsius.

"Cold Wave to Severe Cold Wave conditions at a few pockets very likely over Punjab and at isolated pockets over Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi on 24th December. Cold wave conditions at isolated pockets very likely Punjab and Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi on 25th; over Uttar Pradesh on 24th & 25th December; over Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Odisha on 24th December 2020", says IMD reports in its morning bulletin.

The temperature recorded today was lowest at Lodhi Road at 3.7 degrees Centigrade. In the coming days, as winds will continue to move from the Western Himalayan region, the temperature will be between 3 and 4 degrees Centigrade: Kuldeep Srivastava, IMD head.

Delhi will remain vulnerable to cold wave for the next three days

Due to cold wave, the minimum temperature once again reached four degrees below normal in Delhi on Wednesday. Because of this, the minimum temperature was recorded at four degrees Celsius. Therefore, chill has increased in Delhi in the morning. In the morning, visibility in many areas of Delhi was very low due to dense fog. However, the maximum temperature was recorded two degrees above normal due to reduced wind speed and sunshine during the day. This brought some relief from the cold in the afternoon.
