Fresh snow on higher reaches

Chandigarh, December 30
With no let-up in the biting cold wave conditions, people in the north-west region braved icy winds today while dense fog continued to affect air, rail and road services.

Gulmarg and Sonmarg in Jammu and Kashmir and Patsio in Himachal Pradesh reported fresh spells of snowfall in the past 24 hours.

With visibility reduced to barely a few metres, Indian Airlines and Jet Airways flights were cancelled today, with little hope of their operating tomorrow.

Vehicular traffic moved at a snails pace till late in the afternoon while most of the Northern Railway trains ran 30 minutes to five hours behind schedule, reports from Jalandhar and Ambala said.

Chandigarh, after braving 1C temperature, the lowest in seven years yesterday, shivered today as the day temperature dipped by nine degrees to 11.6C. The minimum, however, rose to 4.4C.

Ambala, 50 km from here, too, recorded a high of nine degrees below normal at 13.2C. The minimum today was two degrees below normal at 5.3C. Rohtak recorded a low of 3.9C.

Amritsar continued to be the coldest place in the plains with the minimum temperature hovering around 2C, two degrees below normal while the day temperature dropped by four degrees to 16.4C.

Ludhiana reported a low of 2.4C, four degrees below normal, and the maximum dipped by six degrees to 15C.

In Srinagar, the minimum temperature dipped below freezing point at 1.4C, while Jammu was colder by one degree at 7.3C.

Shimla, however, saw the minimum today rising to 5.3C, three degrees above normal, while the day temperature was four degrees above normal at 14.2C. UNI
