Cold to severe cold wave situations will continue to grip northern India in the next two days, according to IMD.

North India continues to grapple with the cold wave as temperatures hit sub-zero in some areas for a second consecutive day. A thick layer of fog covers parts of the Indo-Gangetic Plain, bringing daytime temperatures to nearly zero in many areas. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted cold to severe cold conditions for parts of north India over the next two days. The weather department has also said parts of Uttarakhand, Delhi, Chandigarh, Haryana, Punjab and western Rajasthan will experience dense to very dense fog in the next 24 hours due to light wind and high moisture in lower tropospheric levels. The intensity of fog is likely to reduce thereafter. Delhi recorded an average temperature of seven degrees Celsius Tuesday morning and the lowest (over the country's plains) was recorded in Rajasthan's Churu at 0.5 degrees Celsius, according to IMD.
