Though mercury took an upward swing at several places in the state due to western disturbances, yet the chilly conditions and icy winds continued to wreak havoc in some parts with Mount Abu shivering at minus 1 degree Celsius and ground fog stalling road and air traffic.

Early morning fog and mist affected the vehicular traffic on the national highways connecting Delhi, Agra, Ajmer, Udaipur. Some flights coming from Delhi too were delayed due to fog in the pink city, the weather office said here.

The western disturbances which were active since yesterday guided mercury to take an upward swing and rise in temperatures were recorded in some of the stations, however the blowing of the northernly winds shivered people in the state.

Churu remained coldest at 1.4 degree Celsius in plains and Mt Abu remained coldest at minus 1 degree Celsius at hills, the met reports said here.

Churu was followed by Dabok that recorded a minimum of 3.0, Jodhpur 3.4, Bikaner 3.6, Sriganganagar 3.8, Barmer 4.0, Jaisalmer 4.2, Ajmer 6.4, Jaipur 7.6 and Kota recorded a minimum of 9.8 degree Celsius
