Biting cold wave, fog disrupts normal life in UP

Lucknow: A biting cold wave accompanied by fog in most parts of Uttar Pradesh has disrupted normal life, including delay of more than half a dozen flights by up to two hours, weather officials said on Saturday.

The bone-chilling cold is set to increase in the coming days due to mountain snow and active westward winds

The Meteorological Department said that cold wave conditions were prevailing in many parts of north-west and central India and the weather pattern was likely to prevail in western Uttar Pradesh also during the next 48 hours.

The bone-chilling cold is set to increase in the coming days due to mountain snow and active westward winds.

As per Met office data, minimum temperature was 6.8 degrees Celsius in Lucknow on Saturday, 6.4 degrees in Kanpur, 9 degrees in Prayagraj, 6 degrees in Bahraich, 3.7 degrees in Bareilly, and 3.8 degrees in Muzaffarnagar.

After state capital Lucknow’s minimum 0.5 degree, Agra was the second coldest city in the state on Friday, reporting zero visibility due to fog to force vehicles to move at a snail’s pace on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway, Yamuna Expressway, and the Agra-Delhi National Highway.

January 1, 2021 was the coldest day of this winter season so far in Agra, as north-west snowy winds blowed from mountains to the northern plains.

According to Met Broadcast Centre, the cold wave is likely to continue, with cloudy skies in afternoon hours and decrease in temperature by two to three degrees during the day. Rain is expected till January 5.

Meteorologist Dhruv Sen said that increased pollution due to vehicular movement around new year in Lucknow led to many people complaining of a burning sensation in their eyes.
