Minimum temperature drops again in Punjab and Haryana

Chandigarh, February 14

Adampur shivered at a minimum temperature of 5.3 degrees Celsius on Wednesday as the cold weather conditions returned to most parts in Punjab and neighbouring Haryana after a temporary respite.

After rain in the two states earlier this week, the minimum temperature had hovered above normal limits at most places, a MeT official said on Wednesday.

However, the minimum temperature dropped by few notches reviving the cold weather conditions.

“Adampur in Punjab was the coldest place in the two states,” the MeT official said.

Amritsar, Bathinda and Faridkot also recorded below normal minimums at 6.3 degrees Celsius, 5.7 degrees Celsius and 7.4 degrees Celsius, respectively.

Halwara and Pathankot, too, experienced the cold weather recording respective lows of 6.4 degrees Celsius and 7.1 degrees Celsius.

Ludhiana, Patiala and Gurdaspur recorded respective minimums of 8.2 degrees Celsius, 8.6 degrees Celsius and 8.4 degrees Celsius.

While in Haryana, where Karnal was the coldest place recording a low of 7 degrees Celsius, Sirsa and Hisar settled at a low of 6.9 degrees Celsius and 7.8 degrees Celsius, respectively.

Also, Ambala recorded a low of 9.7 degrees Celsius and Bhiwani registered a low of 8.1 degrees Celsius.
