The Indo-Gangetic plains are renowned for witnessing chilly weather during the winter months. Bone-chilling breezes, thick fog layer, and people wrapped up in woolens is what is seen during the month of January. And this is what can be seen in parts of the desert state as well.
The intense cold condition continues to affect parts of North India with Rajasthan’s Sikar recording its minimum temperature at zero degree Celsius today. With this, cold wave conditions continue to affect the life in the city. However, fog remained far from showing up.
Generally, North Rajasthan records very low minimum temperatures during the winter months and January is the coldest for the state. If the minimum temperatures recorded during the entire month is calculated, Sikar has recorded zero degree Celsius twice this season, the first being on January 3.
Moreover, the minimum temperatures had remained mainly under the 5-degree Celsius mark almost throughout the month with only two occasions recording minimums around 7 degrees Celsius.
