The minimum temperature took another plunge on Friday, with the Met department recording 11.9° Celcius After a rise earlier in the week, the temperature had dipped to 13.7° Celcius on Thursday from 15° Celcius on Wednesday.
"Clear skies, not very pronounced low pressure and incoming northerly winds triggered the dip in the temperature,'' said Met officials. However, they said the temperatures are likely to increase again with a low pressure in south east central, south east and west central Bay of Bengal. "If the movement gets strong it can increase moisture in the air which again would mean a rise in minimum temperatures,'' said the official. He said at present, there were northerly winds moving in from Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir.
According to All India Weather bulletin, the minimum temperatures are below normal at most of the places in the country. Parts of southeast Madhya Pradesh, Marathwada, north Karnataka and interior Andhra Pradesh have recorded a dip in minimum temperatures. The lowest minimum temperature of 8.2° Celsius has been recorded in Amritsar.
The Met department has also forecast that a low pressure area over east central and adjoining south east and west central Bay of bengal is likely to be more marked in the next 24 hours.
