Hyderabad woke up to the coldest day this winter on Monday with the minimum temperature dipping to 11 degree Celsius, 4 less than normal.

If one thought this was cold enough, the weatherman predicts mercury will dip further to as low as 8 degree Celsius in the coming days. The lowest ever recorded minimum temperature in Hyderabad was 6.1 degree Celsius way back in 1940s. However, it was Adilabad that experienced the coldest day in the State till date this winter, with a minimum temperature of 7 degree Celsius. It’s closely followed by Medak, which recorded a temperature of 10 degree Celsius. Ramagundam and Nizamabad experienced 11 degree Celsius while in Mahbubnagar, it was 13. In the Coastal region, the lowest minimum temperature was recorded in Nandigama (12), followed by Rentichintala and Bapatla (17).

The Met department predicts an average fall in minimum temperatures from the normal by 3 to 4 degrees in Telangana and 1 to 2 degrees in Coastal Andhra. This weather is likely to continue in the State till January-end.

Assistant Meteorologist M Narasimha Rao attributed the cold conditions in Telangana to north-easterly dry cold winds from Northern regions. He said cold wave is still weeks away.
