As per Skymet Weather, rains have seized now, though the sky conditions are still cloudy. With the chill in the air, temperatures remained stagnant at about 15°C during the past four to five hours.

However, it is anticipated that the sun will come up during the daytime which may increase the mercury levels during the day but they would continue to be below normal.

Rains will subside now but isolated spells cannot be ruled out due to localized weather phenomena. The night temperature is likely to fall which would intensify the winters.
