Chilly conditions grip Bhopal, many other cities

Bhopal: The city experienced another day of chilling temperatures on Saturday, marking the third consecutive day of cold weather. The Meteorological Department attributes this to a localized cyclonic circulation.

On Saturday, Bhopal registered a maximum temperature of 28.4 degrees Celsius, with a minimum temperature of 10.8 degrees Celsius. In Indore, the day temperature reached 27 degrees Celsius, while the night temperature dropped to 14.2 degrees Celsius. Several cities, including Datia, Guna, Gwalior, Pachmarhi, Raisen, Rajgarh, Chhindwara, Damoh, Jabalpur, Mandla, Rewa, Satna, Sidhi, and Malajhkand, experienced night temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius.

The meteorological department predicts that a western disturbance will reach the mountains on December 16, mainly affecting higher hills. While it is expected to alter winds in the lower atmosphere over the plains, a slight rise in temperatures is anticipated on December 16 and December 17, preventing further declines. However, after the passage of the western disturbance, temperatures may once again dip around December 18, reaching as low as 5 to 6 degrees Celsius between December 18 and December 20.

Dr. Ved Pratap Singh, a senior scientist at the meteorological department, said, “Despite no major fluctuation, many cities are experiencing significant chill due to localized cyclonic circulation.”
