Amritsar coldest ever at minus 2.6C

Chandigarh, January 20
Amritsar today recorded its coldest day ever so far as the mercury plunged to minus 2.6C, a record eight degrees below the normal range.

The last time the minimum temperature at Amritsar had fallen so low was on January 6, 1972. That day the low had been recorded at minus 2.4C, the Director, Meteorological Department, Delhi, Mr R.D. Singh said over phone.

Meanwhile, cold wave sweeping most parts of north India further intensified and Ambala recorded a low of 3.6C, down three degrees while Karnal was also colder by three degrees at 4.1C.

There was little respite for the people in the Kashmir valley. Piercing cold gripped Srinagar and the residents groaned under a sub zero temperature of 3.8C, down two degrees. Jammu also had a cold night at 5.3C, down three.

Many Punjab towns also came under the grip of cold conditions and Ludhiana and Patiala braved the chill recording minimum temperatures at 4.6C and 4.7C, respectively.

In Himachal Pradesh, Shimla, Sundernagar and Bhuntar recorded sub zero minimums at 0.2C, 0.6C and 0.6C, respectively.

Chandigarh had a partial cloudy sky today and cold kept the low here down to 7C. PTI
