Mercury stays below normal in region

Chandigarh, December 28
Many parts in north-west India were again in the grip of intense cold with the minimum temperature hovering at one degree to three degrees below normal even as a bright sunshine greeted the people in the region today.

Several areas remained enveloped in a dense fog which reduced visibility considerably, forcing the vehicular traffic to move at a snails pace in the morning. The visibility reduced to 500 metres at Delhi, Ambala, Halwara and Suratgarh and to 800 metres at Sirsa and Adampur. Amritsar experienced mist.

Keeping in view the prevailing weather conditions, agricultural experts have advised farmers to smoke their fields during the night to protect vegetables from cold. In order to protect fruits and flowers, it was necessary to irrigate them lightly.

Jalandhar at 3C turned to be the coldest place in Punjab following three degrees fall in the minimum temperature, while Amritsar recorded 3.4C, one degree below normal.

The mercury hovered one degree below normal at Ludhiana and two degrees below normal at Patiala, recording 5.4C and 5C. Pathankot registered 5.4C.

Karnal reeled under 5.4 degrees, three degrees below normal, turning it the coldest place in Haryana, followed by Ambala recording 6.4 degrees, one degree below normal. However, the temperature rose three degrees above normal at Hisar registering 8.1C. The mercury again dipped in Chandigarh to 6.6C from 7.4 degrees recorded yesterday.

A piercing cold wave swept Srinagar with the minimum temperature plummeting to 0.4C, two degrees below normal in the capital town.

Tribal areas in Himachal Pradesh were also under the impact of a harsh cold wave as the temperature hovered below the freezing point in these areas. The temperature further dropped to 4.5 degrees at Shimla and the town was lashed by icy cold winds despite a sunshine during the day.

Light to moderate rain or snow is likely to occur at a few places in Himachal Pradesh, while fog or clouds will drape Haryana and Punjab during the next 24 hours. Ground frost may occur at isolated places in Punjab during the next two nights, according to the Metrological Department here. UNI
