Residents of Hyderabad may need to brace themselves further as the cold weather prevailing in the city for the past week or so, may continue further.
It was reported that the temperature, which is already a few degrees lower than usual, is likely to decrease to 8 degrees over the next few days.
"Whenever there is cloudy sky, temperature tends to rise as the long-wave radiation released from the surface at night time is trapped between the Earth and clouds. This leads to increase in temperatures. Even if there are no clouds, the heat is sometimes trapped in fog or smog," Ramesh, a member secretary of the Indian Meteorological Society said media.
Another reason for the drop in temperature is because of the lack of warm and humid winds from the south-east.
