Shimla, May 21

The Meteorological Department has issued a fresh yellow weather warning for thunderstorm in Himachal Pradesh on May 22 and 23, an official said Tuesday.

The Shimla Meteorological Centre has forecast thunderstorm accompanied with gusty winds in plains and low and middle hills of the state on Wednesday and Thursday, he said.

The MeT office issues colour-coded warnings to alert the public ahead of severe or hazardous weather which has the potential to cause 'damage, widespread disruption and/or danger to life.'      Yellow is the least dangerous out of the weather warnings — it indicates the possibility of severe weather over the next few days that could affect the public.

Meanwhile, precipitation occurred at isolated places over the state during the last 24 hours.

The lowest temperature in the state was recorded in Lahaul-Spiti's administrative centre Keylong at 5.5 degrees Celsius. PTI
