Many parts of Karnataka including Bengaluru have seen a sudden fall in the minimum temperature, reports The Hindu.

The maximum temperature in the city on Wednesday (3 January) was 27.4 degree Celsius, and the minimum was 12.4 degree Celsius, 3 degree Celsius colder than usual.

The lowest January temperature in Bengaluru is 12 degree Celsius, which was recorded in 2012.

"The cold wave is a result of anti-cyclonic circulation over central India. Dry air from the north has led to a cold wave in north interior Karnataka. As a result, fog is also expected in many parts of the State, including Bengaluru.” C S Patil, IMD Bengaluru Director-in-charge was quoted saying by The Hindu.

The temperature in districts like Shivamogga, Kodagu has fallen to 10 degree Celsius. “These places are experiencing a severe cold wave. This is less than 6 degrees from the normal in these places,” said Patil.
