Night temperatures are likely to rise by about 2°C over the next 2 days and drop thereafter. In the wake of the system, a slight chill in the air across the mountains and the plains is likely. The mercury level may plunge to record lowest of 10°C-12°C at many places. Also, the surface and lower-level winds will pick up strength, between the 10th and 13th Nov.
