Bhubaneswar: The IMD has forecast moderate cold wave condition in many parts of Odisha over the next two days.

"Moderate cold wave condition likely to prevail over some parts of interior Odisha during next 48 hours," a bulletin issued by the IMD said here on Wednesday.

The mercury level is likely to remain below 10 degrees Celsius in the interior parts of the state while the minimum temperature in the coastal region would hover between 10 degrees Celsius and 13 degrees Celsius, a senior meteorologist said.

Cold wave conditions will prevail in Odisha in the next two-three days due to cold winds blowing from the northeast direction and Sikkim at a speed of 25 kilometres per hour, said S C Sahu, the director of IMD, Bhubaneswar.

Phulbani was the coldest place in the state yesterday night with the minimum temperature at 5 degrees Celsius compared to the night temperature of 7 degrees Celsius on Monday, the IMD bulletin said. -PTI
