Temperature has gone into a free fall. On Wednesday, maximum and minimum temperatures dipped to the lowest in the decade in Madhya Pradesh.

Breaching a decade-old record of 5.5 degrees Celsius in 2003, Indore recorded a minimum temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. The lowest temperature ever recorded in Indore was 1.1 degree Celsius in 1936.

However, the neighbouring Khargone city pipped Indore to record the lowest night temperature of 4.5 degrees Celsius on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Bhopal witnessed the second coldest night of December in the decade. The temperature came down to 6.5 degrees Celsius. Before this, in 2010, the city recorded a minimum temperature at 5.9 degrees Celsius.

The north-east wind speeding at 16 km/hr turned the weather cold, said Meteorological department. The minimum temperature would go up after 24 hours as moisture incursion from the Arabian Sea would increase. But the day temperature would fall, the department’s regional head Abhinav Kashyapi said.

In Indore, a dense morning fog reduced visibility to less than 150 metres. Flight operations were severely hit in the morning due to fog. Meteorological department has forecast occurrence of ground frost in the next 24 hours in Betul, Umaria, Damoh and Khajuraho.
