Talking about North India, several states are under the trap of cold waves for a few days. This would probably continue for some time. Padum town of Ladakh has witnessed a dip in temperature. On Monday, the temperature reached -25 °C.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department, there would be dense or extremely dense fog during morning and night timings. This is likely to prevail over several states of North India, including Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Punjab, and Uttarakhand.

Delhi had a respite from cold winds for a few days but it saw a comeback on Tuesday. Frosty winds swept in the plains from the Himalayas and have led to a drop in the temperature. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, many places in the city saw a drop of five notches from the normal temperature. These places included Mayur Vihar, Lodhi Road, Jafarpur, and Palam.

There are some parts of Delhi where shallow fog could be observed in the morning. It dropped the visibility level and led to hindrances in traffic movement.

IMD said that the low cloud cover and fog have resulted in cold days for Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Bihar, and Haryana. In some places of Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan, the cold winds didn’t take a break.

According to the reports, these cold waves wouldn’t subside for the next 3 days over the northwest region of India. The intensity would reduce after that.
