There seems to be no respite in sight from the freezing cold, at least for the moment.
The bone-chilling cold is forcing North Indians to remain indoors with markets and parks wearing a deserted look. Besides the chill in the Capital, many parts of north India recorded sub-zero temperatures. Very low temperatures have been reported from all over the Indo-Gangetic plains. While Delhi shivered at the lowest of 1.9Â°C on Sunday, Hisar recorded -1.1Â° and Agra in Uttar Pradesh was at 0.5Â°C.
These ever-dropping temperatures are because of weaker and fewer western disturbances. A feeble western disturbance would affect the western Himalayan region from January 9, implying a slight increase in temperature in the upcoming days.
