In fact, thunderstorm accompanied with hailstorm and gusty winds may also occur over isolated places in the state which may cause damage to crops in the region, particularly wheat.
Thereafter, from February 8, weather over the state will start clearing up, but due to the commencement of icy cold winds from northern hills, minimums will continue to drop leading to chilly conditions over most parts of the state.
