Kolkata: The city recorded its lowest temperature in seven years on Tuesday with the mercury dipping below 10 degrees Celsius while the hill town of Darjeeling shivered at minus one degree.
With officials at the Alipore Meteorological Department forecasting a cold wave to sweep over the southern districts of the State in the next 24 hours, the temperature is expected to dip further on Wednesday.
Regional Meteorological Centre director G. C. Debnath said the city recorded a minimum temperature of 9.9 degrees. “The temperature is likely to drop to 9 on Wednesday,” he added.
The mercury had plunged to 9.4 degrees on January 6, 2004, which is so far recorded as the coldest day of the decade.
Mr. Debnath said a cold wave warning has been issued to all ten south Bengal districts in the next 24 hours.
