The minimum temperature in the past 24-hours was 7.7 degrees Celsius while the maximum was 20.7 degrees Celsius. The weather office attributed the sudden change in temperature to heavy snowfall in the states of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.

"A second western disturbance has become active in the Kashmir region, leading to a cyclonic situation in western Uttar Pradesh," a climate expert said. Director of the Regional Met office, J.P. Gupta said the cold wave was likely to continue till January 22.
