With the change in wind pattern, the city witnessed a drop of six degrees Celsius in last two days. The night temperature too dropped down by three degrees as compare to the temperature recorded on Tuesday.

Regional Meteorological Department officials said that the change in weather condition was due to disturbance in northern part of the state which was hit by rainfall and hailstorm. They said there was a long spell of south-easterly winds last week and now the wind pattern has changed towards northern. “The fluctuation in temperature on Wednesday was result of change in wind pattern which was blowing from south-east part of the city.
