Not only this, November of this year is seen breaking the record of decades in terms of cold. Meanwhile, Punjab, Haryana and other states also recorded below normal temperatures on Friday.

Kuldeep Srivastava, head of the Meteorological Department’s regional forecast center, said that this is the first time since November 29, 2006 when Delhi’s temperature has come down so much in November.
