12 Places In Odisha Record Night Temp Below 10°C; Cold Wave Recedes, Fog To Return

Bhubaneswar: Amid ebbing cold wave conditions, Semiliguda in Koraput district remained the coldest place in Odisha for the third day in a row at 4.5 degree Celsius, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) informed on Tuesday.

After biting cold for two successive days, the state has been witnessing a slight change in the night temperature, which will gradually rise by 3-4 degrees Celsius during the next three days. Semiliguda had recorded the season’s lowest minimum temperature of 2 degree Celsius on Sunday and 3.7 degree Celsius the following day. There is no further cold wave warning for the state.

This is being attributed weakening of northerly and north-westerly wind flow towards Odisha.

However, fog will return to the state.
