Meanwhile, officials of the regional meteorological department said that weather conditions would remain the same for a couple of days and it would drop further after a couple of days.
‘Condition would remain the same for a couple of days and the temperature may drop further as the western disturbance would cause snowfall in the northern parts of the country,’ the weatherman said. They added that the weather in the state is dry and the humidity level may remain high due to which chances of fog and mist are high. Humidity in the morning was recorded at 75 per cent while in the evening it logged in around 57 per cent.
