Cold conditions are likely to return as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted a sharp fall in the minimum or the night temperature in different parts of Odisha in the coming days.

As per the latest IMD forecast, the night temperature is very likely to fall gradually by 3 to 5 degree C at many places over the districts of Odisha during the next four to five days.

Even though the overall weather conditions will remain dry, the fall in minimum temperature is likely cause inconvenience to people in different parts of the state. As per the IMD, yesterday’s low pressure area over south Coastal Andhra Pradesh and neighbourhood has become less marked.
