"The closed places in the city are generally better as the heat gets trapped, but in open places, the wind movement is more and hence the temperature dips. KIAL surroundings reported 10.7 degree Celsius and HAL area witnessed 12.8 degree Celsius. This trend is likely to continue for the rest of the winter season," said an official from KSNDMC.
