Snowfall was witnessed in Bageshwar and Almora, both districts on the foothills of Himalayas. These places have never experienced such weather in mid-December.
Almora, Pithoragarh and other reigons in Kumaon are witnessing temperatures between 1 degrees Celsius and minus 4 degrees Celsius. Icy winds from Uttarakhand swept through the neighbouring Uttar Pradesh; its capital city of Lucknow was the the coldest place as it recorded 6.6 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, way below the normal.
The weatherman has forecasts harsher days and said the mercury will drop further.
