Amritsar coldest at 1.2C

Chandigarh, January 4
People in the North-West region continued to reel under spine curdling cold wave conditions while dense fog played havoc with air, rail and road traffic.
Amritsar district(1.2C), bordering Pakistan and Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, were the coldest places as icy winds blowing across the fresh snow-clad mountains brought the minimum temperature to 1.3C. Higher reaches received fresh spells of mild snow in the past 24 hours. Minimum temperature in Jammu dipped by three degrees to 5.5C.

The Indian Airlines and Jet Airways to and fro flights, flew in here almost two hours behind schedule because of poor visibility. However, the IA Chandigarh-New Delhi-Mumbai and Jet Airways Chandigarh-New Delhi return flights took off on time.

Most of the trains in the Northern Railway sector remained half an hour to three hours behind schedule

Chandigarhians again experienced a cold day as the day temperature hovered around 11C, while the minimum temperature dropped to 5.4C, two degrees below normal. Ludhiana (4.4C), Patiala (4.5C) were among other cities of Punjab that shivered due to the cold waves. People came out of the houses around noon as the fog lifted and Sun came out.

Ambala (4.5C), Hisar (4.2C), Karnal (5C) and Rohtak (5.4C) were among the Haryana towns where the minimum temperature dropped by two to three degrees.

Shimla, capital of HP, reported the low of 2.7C, while the minimum temperature at Bhuntar dipped to freezing point and Sunder Nagar was cold at 0.4C.

Weathermen here have forecast mainly dry weather in the lower reaches and recurring fog over the next 48 hours. UNI
