The temperature in certain parts of the city dropped to as low as 6 degree Celsius on Friday morning.

According to the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC), the lowest temperature of 5.8 degree Celsius was recorded at Channarayapatna hobli in Bengaluru Rural district.

“The KSNDMC has 10 stations in the city. A few of them recorded a temperature of 6 degree Celsius on Friday morning. The average lowest temperature was 10.6 degree Celsius in Bengaluru Urban,” said G.S. Srinivas Reddy, Director, KSNDMC.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) recorded a maximum temperature of 28.6 degree Celsius and minimum of 13.3 degree Celsius on Friday.

“The KSNDMC has more recording stations in the city compared to the IMD. It can lead to disparities in temperature recordings,” Mr. Reddy added.
