The Meteorological department claimed that the condition would remain the same with a drop in the night temperature while there would be chances of light rain after January 17 due to the effect of two western disturbances.

Similar to the last five days, denizens woke up to a misty and chilly morning, and cold winds blew throughout the day affecting the daily routine of people on Saturday as well.

“A fresh western disturbance is likely to affect western Himalayan region from January 16 and another western disturbance is likely to affect Northwest India from January 18. Under the influence of these conditions, western part of the state including the Indore region may witness the condition of light rains after January 17,” met official said.

Maximum temperature on Saturday was recorded at 21.2 degrees Celsius, which was five degrees below the normal, whereas the minimum temperature was recorded at 9.1 degrees Celsius, which was one degree below the normal temperature.
