Shimla Weather

During the summer season, the hills are a favoured location due to pleasant weather conditions prevailing in the region. During that time, the plains of North India remain hot as the mercury remains sky high.

Meanwhile, winter remains severe over the hills of North India, but the Northern Plains also reel under harsh wintry conditions. In fact, as compared to the hills, the plains are more exposed to winter vagaries in terms of thick fog. The fog layer in the plains of North India do not let the temperatures arresting them at the lower range only.


The hills, on the other hand, do not witness foggy conditions. Even if fog does appear, it is only for shorter durations. In case of clear sky conditions, the hills remain warmer than the plains during the day.

Shimla, one of the hilly state capitals, lies on an elevation of over 7000 feet and lies in the Shivalik range. Presently, some parts of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan are colder than the hilly city of Shimla. The capital city of Himachal Pradesh is witnessing minimums way higher than some areas in the plains.

Moreover, Shimla until now, has not even seen one day of freezing point temperatures while Sikar in Rajasthan saw the minimum drop to zero degree Celsius for the second time today. Other pockets of the Northern Plains also are favourable for lower temperatures.

For instance, Amritsar recorded its lowest minimum of the season at 1°C, Bathinda 1.8°C, Ferozepur 2°C, and Sri Ganganagar at 2.2°C. Meanwhile, the minimum at Shimla settled at a whopping 9.3°C.
