Cold wave continues to sweep North and East India. Dense fog at several places in the region has affected normal life.

Minimum temperature marked an improvement at most places in Ladakh region and Kashmir Valley, currently under the grip of Chillai-Kalan, a 40-day harshest period of winter.

MeT Department has predicted light rains or snowfall at isolated places, especially in the higher reaches, in the state over the next 12 hours.

Biting cold continues to sweep most parts of Himachal Pradesh. Higher hills of Chamba, Kullu, Kinnaur and Lahul Spiti have received fresh snowfall. More from our correspondent:
