melting will increase again due to the effect of westerly disturbance
According to the Meteorological Department, a new Western Disturbance is knocking on Northwest India. The effect will be felt in the plains after three to four days. For this reason there will be another return of biting cold. At the moment, the department has expressed the possibility of getting relief from the cold snap from Monday.

There is no possibility of postponing the fog until next week. There is also a chance of dense fog and cold on Sunday morning.
