Cold wave continues unabated in region

Chandigarh, January 4
A cold wave continued unabated in the north-west India today with the mercury dipping 2 to 5C below normal at many places in the region.

Dense fog enveloped certain areas in the region, reducing visibility to nil at Udhampur and up to 500 metres at Adampur and Palam (Delhi) and 800 metres at Suratgarh. Jammu, Pathankot, Ambala and Chandigarh experienced haze while Amritsar, Halwara, Sarsawa, Sirsa and Bhatinda reported mist.

People groaned under the piercing cold wave for the second successive day at Amritsar which continued to be the coldest place in Punjab as the minimum temperature remained almost static in the holy city recording -0.6C, five degrees below normal.

A severe cold wave swept the state in the wake of further fall in the mercury. The minimum hovered below normal by four degrees at Ludhiana and two degrees at Patiala, respectively, recording 1.9 degrees and 4.5C.

The cold wave also lashed Haryana with Narnaul in Mahendergarh district recording the lowest temperature at 1.5C, turning to be the coldest place in the state. Ambala recorded 4.7 degrees, two degrees below normal, while Karnal showed 3.6 degrees, three degrees below normal, and Hisar 5.3C.

The death toll due to the current spell of cold wave and fog-related incidents have claimed the lives of 17 people in Punjab and Haryana so far.

The cold wave conditions sweeping Punjab and Haryana are likely to abate in the next two days, but ground frost may occur at many places during the next night in these states, according to the Weather Office here.

Several areas in Himachal Pradesh reeled under intense cold wave conditions following further drop in the mercury. The entire tribal belt in the state was under the impact of extreme cold wave conditions as the minimum temperature hovered below the freezing point in the tribal areas. Kalpa in Kinnaur district recorded -3.9C.

The minimum further fell at Sundernagar in Mandi district recording minus 1.5 degrees, while Bhuntar in Kulu district showed minus 1.4 degrees, two degrees below normal. Shimla was comparatively warmer, recording the minimum of 3.8C.

The cold wave also intensified in Jammu and Kashmir with Srinagar recording minus 4.3 degrees, three degrees below normal, while Jammu registered 4.2 degrees, four degrees below normal.

The cold wave continued without let up in Chandigarh and its adjoining areas in Punjab and Haryana even as a bright sunshine greeted the people during the day. The city recorded the minimum at 4C, three degrees below normal.

The weather will be mainly sunny in the region tomorow, the Met Office said. UNI
