IMD officials explained that when the skies are clear, the heat emitted from the earth’s surface freely escapes the atmosphere, resulting in colder temperatures. On the other hand, a protective cloud blanket, traps the heat, leading to warmer nights.

As the weather remains clear, the night temperature can dip further in the coming days.

While a fresh Western Disturbance is likely to affect the region on December 11, it is not expected to bring rain.

Meanwhile, the maximum temperature also decreased from 26°C on Thursday to 23.5°C on Friday, 1.4 degree below normal. Over the next three days, the maximum temperature will remain between 22°C and 23°C, and the minimum temperature between 8°C and 9°C.
