Chandigarh: There was no relief Tuesday from the intense cold conditions prevailing in Punjab and Haryana, with minimum temperatures in most parts of the neighbouring states plunging upto three degrees Celsius below normal.

Mercury hovered between 1 to 3 degrees Celsius below
normal in most parts of the region and a thick blanket of fog
continued to play havoc as normal life was affected, the Met
office said here.

Chandigarh, the joint capital of the two states, recorded
a minimum temperature of 3.7 deg C, which was one notch below
normal.

Bright sunshine in the city today provided some relief
from foggy weather that had been prevailing for the past few
days.

Amritsar was the coldest place in the plains of the
region with a low of 1.4 deg C, which was two notches below
normal.

While Narnaul in Haryana shivered at a low of 2 deg C,
three notches below normal, the minimum temperature at Hisar
was 2.5 deg C, also three notches below normal.
Among other places, Bhiwani braved a low of 3 deg C
followed by 3.9 deg C in Ludhiana, two notches below normal
and 4.6 deg C in Patiala, one notch below normal.

Karnal settled at a low of 4 deg C, which was three
notches below normal, whereas Ambala recorded a minimum
temperature of 5.8 deg C.
Most parts of the region remained engulfed in dense fog,
reducing visibility which resulted in late running of several
trains.

The Met department has forecast dry weather in the region
during the next two days.
