As these winds are drawing from the snow-clad mountains of Sub-Himalayan West Bengal. Thus, in the wake of this, the temperatures are expected to remain below normal for the next few days. Moreover, as fog or mist is not expected over the city, the visibility will continue to remain good and days are expected to remain comfortable.
