INDIA: Severe cold was reported in Delhi and several parts of north India, with the weather office predicting cold wave conditions to prevail over the next two days.

Along with Delhi, temperatures have dropped throughout Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan.

According to officials, most of these states have had minimum temperatures between 3 and 7 degrees Celsius.

They also noted that reduced visibility caused by the foggy weather had a negative impact on road and train traffic in a number of locations.

As the minimum temperature dropped several degrees below the freezing threshold in Kashmir, the frigid conditions got even worse.

Due to the cold wave conditions, schools in Patna, Bihar, will be closed from December 26 to December 31.

This was announced in a notice by the district magistrate. For pupils in grades up to eight, the schools would stay closed, according to the Patna DM.

Kashmir is currently experiencing “Chilla-i-Kalan,” the 40 days of the most brutal winter, during which a cold wave grabs the area and the temperature drops significantly, causing water bodies and water supply pipes to freeze in numerous areas of the valley.

If the minimum temperature drops to 4 degrees Celsius on the plains, the IMD announces a cold wave. When the minimum temperature falls to 10 degrees Celsius or less and is 4.5 tiers below average, this is also a cold wave.

When the minimum temperature falls below two degrees Celsius or the deviation from normal is more significant than 6.4 degrees Celsius; it is considered a “severe” cold wave.
