BHUBANESWAR: Central and western pockets felt the chill as mercury showed a downward slide across many parts of the State even as the weather office announced onset of a cold wave.

Daringibadi and Phulbani recorded 7 degree Celsius while Angul, Bhawanipatna and Hirakud reported sub-10 degree C on the day.

Across the State, the chill could be felt as the night temperature showed a falling trend. Puri, where the minimum temperature was 17.4 degree C, was probably the warmest of the towns in the night. In Bhubaneswar, the night temperature was 14.8 degree C.

The India Meteorological Department said while weather would remain dry, cold wave will be prevalent for at least for two days.

In view of cyclonic storm Vardah, moderate rain and thundershowers may prevail at some places of the State during December 11-13.


However, there will be no change in the temperature pattern in the State over the weekend.
