Shimla, January 9
Hills of Himachal Pradesh have been witnessing a ‘warm winter’ compared to the bone-chilling weather in most parts of the northern Indian plains and weather experts on Monday attributed this as a natural phenomenon.
They say the sun is shining brightly in Himachal Pradesh these days while a thick blanket of fog refuses to lift from most parts of Punjab, Haryana and the national capital.
Shimla, the Queen of Hills, is recording the “warmest” days owing to long sunny spells, while cities like Chandigarh, Amritsar, Bathinda, Ludhiana, Ambala, Karnal and New Delhi, all located in the plains, are reeling under cold wave conditions with the sun almost fogged out for over a week now.
Hill destinations have been experiencing long hours of sunny weather for over a week now and the day temperatures in most places have risen.
