If the met reports are to be believed then, the temperature is poised to drop further across north in the coming days. This information was shared by Manmohan Singh, Director, India Meteorological Department (IMD), Shimla.
“Currently the minimum temperature in Himachal Pradesh is one or two degrees below normal while the temperature during the day is normal. No significant western disturbance is expected in the next one week. Temperature is likely to drop by one or two degrees in the coming days,” he said.
After a fresh bout of snowfall in the Himalayas, the cold wave has intensified in the region.
Keylong in Lahaul Spiti is the coldest with temperature ranging around -7 degrees Celsius.
Further, Kalpa in the Kinnaur district recorded -4 degrees Celsius.
Popular hill stations, Manali and Shimla recorded -2.4 degrees and 2.1 degrees Celsius respectively.
The cold wave has left hundreds of passengers at several railway stations in north India stranded as multiple trains have been cancelled, delayed and rescheduled in the last couple of days.
