He continued “Dense to extremely dense fog will persist in the belt. On December 29, there will be an improvement due to a western disturbance that will bring new snowfall to Jammu and Kashmir, Leh, and Himachal Pradesh. Meanwhile, there will be precipitation in north Punjab on 29 December.”
According to Jenamani, there will be a dramatic improvement beginning December 28 when the cold wave passes owing to a western disturbance.
