  • According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), it is likely that most parts of India will not witness cold wave conditions till January 5, 2022. However, in Odisha, a cold wave in isolated pockets may occur in the next 24 hours, the IMD said.
  • The IMD added that western disturbances are likely to remain active and, hence, rain can be expected in several parts of the country in the last week of December and the first week of January.
  • As a result of the western disturbances, the minimum temperature in many parts of the country is likely to stay above the normal level over the next two weeks.

This comes even as the minimum temperature in Delhi settled at four degrees Celsius and the IMD issued a five-day yellow warning for Hyderabad amid a dip in mercury on Tuesday.
On Thursday, the higher reaches of Kashmir received fresh snowfall while the minimum temperature registered a significant improvement across the valley.
Meanwhile, in parts of Rajasthan, the minimum temperatures have risen, as of Thursday, after the state experienced severe cold conditions earlier this week.
