Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Lucknow -

LUC­KNOW: There was a dip in the day and night tem­per­a­tures across Ut­tar Pradesh due to snow­fall in the hills dur­ing the last 2-3 days, said an of­fi­cial at the Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Cen­tre, Luc­know.

The min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture in many ci­ties was around 10 de­grees Cel­sius while the max­i­mum came down to be­low 30 de­grees, forc­ing peo­ple to take out light woolens.

The min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture in Luc­know dipped to 10.2 de­grees Cel­sius (four de­grees be­low nor­mal) on Thurs­day while it went up to 11.2 de­grees Cel­sius (three de­grees be­low nor­mal) on Fri­day.

The max­i­mum was recorded at 28.2 de­grees on Thurs­day and on Fri­day it dropped a lit­tle to 27.7 de­grees (three de­grees be­low nor­mal). The max­i­mum rel­a­tive hu­mid­ity was 84%.

The lo­cal fore­cast for Luc­know and neigh­bour­ing areas was clear sky, mist in the morn­ing. Max­i­mum and min­i­mum tem­per­a­tures would be around 29 and 11 de­grees Cel­sius re­spec­tively.

“The drop in day and night tem­per­a­tures was due to snow­fall

in Jammu and Kash­mir, Hi­machal Pradesh and Ut­tarak­hand. North­west­erly winds also con­tributed to it. There will be no sig­nif­i­cant change in night tem­per­a­ture for a while,” said JP Gupta, di­rec­tor, Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Cen­tre.

Muzaf­far­na­gar recorded the low­est night tem­per­a­ture at 9 de­grees Cel­sius.
