Rajasthan, Haryana, UP shiver as minimums drop close to freezing point

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.

For instance, Minimum at Alwar settled at 0.4°C making it the coldest city in the plains of India today followed by Narnaul at 0.5°C. Other areas where minimums were below 2 degrees are as follows: Sikar 0.5°C, Shahjahanpur 0.9°C, Churu 1.1°C, Sri Ganganagar 1.6°C, and Najibabad 1.7°C.

Thus, very severe coldwave conditions have been prevailing over the above-mentioned areas. Now, the sky conditions are clear, and intensity of fog has reduced from these areas. Due to the rapid cooling of the earth’s surface taking place during the night, minimums have been dropping to such an extent.

As per weathermen at Skymet Weather, not much change is expected in the temperature profile is expected and only marginal rise may be witnessed in minimums. However, as the dry and cold northwesterly winds will continue to blow over the region, wind chill factor will come into play.

Thus, in spite of clear sky conditions and sunny days, feel like temperature will be much more than the recorded minimums. Intensity of fog will reduce over these areas and due to persisting moderate winds, dense fog will not make a comeback over these areas for some time at least.
