According to an IMD official, large parts of north and northwest India recorded below normal maximum and minimum temperatures for most of the days this month before a western disturbance brought respite from the cold. This drop in maximum and minimum temperatures was due to a dense fog layer over the Indo-Gangetic plains for the last 10 to 11 days and a large gap between two western disturbances, which brought in colder than normal winds from the snow-capped mountains. Lasted for time

The official of the Meteorological Department said that there is a lot of moisture in the Indo-Gangetic plains due to the large number of water bodies and rivers in the region. Once the Western Disturbance retreats, cold northwesterly winds will start blowing towards the plains.
