Wintry conditions have tightened their grip over the northern parts of the country. So much so that temperatures have been only dropping over many parts of the region. Minimums have been settling below the 5-degree mark for some time now which is why cold wave conditions have been prevailing in many parts.
However, last night and Monday morning were way cold for many areas in the Northwestern Plains. In fact, minimums dropped to near freezing point over East and Southeast Rajasthan, South Haryana and isolated areas of West Uttar Pradesh.
