Bhubaneswar: After unseasonal rainfall subsided in all districts of Odisha, cold and foggy weather conditions returned to the State with mercury plummeting by at least two degrees in many places.

The minimum/night temperature has recorded a marginal fall as Sonepur was the coldest on Monday with 7.5 degree Celsius, followed by Angul at 9 degree Celsius and Bhawanipatna at 10 degree Celsius. Twin cities Bhubaneswar and Cuttack recorded minimum temperatures of 15.3 & 12.4 degrees, respectively.

As per the latest forecast, dense fog is very likely to prevail at one or two places over the districts of Angul, Dhenkanal, Jagatsinghpur, Bhadrak, Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Gajapati, Sundergarh, Jharsuguda, Kalahandi, Kandhamal, Koraput, Cuttack and Khurda.

The night temperature in the interior districts is likely to dip by 4 to 6 degrees and in the coastal areas by 2 to 3 degrees, predicts Met.

"The night temperature will fall further in Odisha in the next few days. Thereafter, the temperature is likely to recurve upward in interior parts due to cloud cover which is likely to trigger light to moderate rainfall at some places," said Duty officer of Bhubaneswar Regional Met centre, Charan Behera.
