Bhubaneswar: There will be a little respite from the prevailing coldwave situation in the state as mercury started rising slowly due to presence of moisture and fog in the atmosphere across the state.
The director of Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre Sarat Chandra Sahu Friday said the temperature has been rising in almost all places over the state due to moisture in the atmosphere and the subsequent fog.
“Moisture in the atmosphere caters for fog. Dense fog is likely to occur in coastal and interior Orissa during next three days as a result the minimum temperature may not fell down below 5 degrees in the state,” Sahu said.
Phulbani town, which was recorded a minimum temperature of 3.5 degrees Celsius two days ago, has recorded 5 degrees Friday, which was the lowest temperature in the state.
A minimum temperature of 8 degrees Celsius was recorded at Sundargarh district headquarters while it was 8.6 degrees at Hirakud, 9 degrees at Keonjhar, 9.2 degrees at Jharsuguda, 9.3 degrees at Sambalpur, 9.6 degrees at Angul and 10 degrees at Bolangir.
