Cold wave again in north

NEW DELHI, FEB. 6. Cold wave conditions revived across north India after a week's respite following widespread rain in most parts, including the national capital, even as higher reaches in Himachal Pradesh received fresh snowfall. Rain lashed large parts of Punjab and Haryana where the mercury plummeted by two or three degrees. Ludhiana recorded a low of seven degree Celsius, which was one degree below normal while Hisar received a maximum rainfall of 17.4 mm followed by 9.4 mm in Karnal, 5.2 in Patiala, 1.2 in Ambala and 0.3 mm in Amritsar.

Himachal Pradesh continued to shiver as tribal belt Lahaul, Pangi and Spiti other higher reaches had intermittent snowfall while the mid-hills were lashed by strong-velocity icy winds accompanied by drizzle and snowflakes. Temperature in mid hills, including Shimla hovered around zero degree while the higher hills reeled under sub-zero temperature. Manali, Dalhousie, Rohtang pass, Dhauladhar ranges, Narkanda and Sangla were under a thick white blanket ranging between 12cm and 15 cm. — PTI
