Mount Abu shivers below freezing point

Cold wave conditions revived in Rajasthan with the state’s sole hill station Mount Abu shivering below the freezing point.

The lowest temperature at Mount Abu was recorded at minus one degree Celsius last night, six notches below normal, a MeT official said.

Mercury plummeted by one to four degrees Celsius at many places in the state with north-westerly winds adding to the chill in the state, the official said.

While on plains Sikar experienced the coldest night of the season with a minimum of 3 degrees Celsius, Churu recorded minimum of 3.4 degrees, followed by Srigangangar 3.6, Udaipur 4.4, Pilani and Bikaner 6.8, and Jaipur 7 degrees Celsius.

Fresh western disturbance is likely to hit Rajasthan by tomorrow which may push mercury up giving little respite from cold wave conditions, a MeT forecast said.
