In a report, IMD officials shared that in the last 24 hours, the minimum temperature recorded in Indore was 6.4°C. It has been the third week in Indore since the temperatures started dropping below normal.

The cold wave started around January 11 and 12. The lowest ever temperature recorded in the city was 1.1°C on December 16, 1935. The average lowest temperature here, in the past decade, has been around 5.6°C

With offices running on a reduced capacity and schools closed due to the third wave of the pandemic, the city had all the more reason to stay inside. Those who step outside are usually bundled in extra layers of warm clothes and heating gear. As people prefer to stay within their homes or offices during the days, almost all traffic dissipates by nightfall. The city streets are significantly cleared out by 8 PM.

Winter temperature dips as low as 1°C in the state
