Cold wave condition to worsen in Telangana

As the state is already reeling under a severe cold wave, the meteorological experts warn that the situation will go worsen by next week.

As on Sunday, the capital city, Hyderabad shivered as the mercury levels dropped to 12 degree Celsius, the lowest this season.

Due to continuous inflow of dry and cold northerly winds from the hills of North India, conditions in Telanagana and Madhya Pradesh are likely to remain unchanged for the next 24 hours at least.

“The cold wave conditions are going to prevail over Telangana for the next week. As the days progress, it is predicted that the cold wave would intensify,” G P Sharma, vice president, meteorology, Skymet, told TOI.

A cold wave warning has been issued by Met dept for the next few days. Many districts located in northern Telangana are already feeling the chill with night temperature at many places falling to below 15 degree Celsius.

In places like Nizamabad and Karimnagar, we predict the minimum temperature to go below 10 degrees Celsius. Whereas for the city of Hyderabad the temperature would stand around 11 degrees Celsius,” he said.
