Schools in Uttar Pradesh's Noida, that borders Delhi, will remain closed for the next two days due to cold weather, according to a directive given by officials today.
"Keeping in view the severe cold wave, schools in Gautam Budh Nagar District will remain closed from 19/2/2019 to 20/12/2019 (2 days)," a press release read.
Ghaziabad DM Ajay Shankar Pandey said, "Classes from nursery to 12th will remain closed due to cold wave conditions."
There has been a dip in temperature for the second day in a row in north India due to low level cloud cover and cold north-northwesterly winds, according to the Indian Meteorological department or IMD.
Cold weather persisted in the region on Wednesday, with the minimum temperature in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad hovering around 10 degrees Celsius.
According to the India Meteorological Department, dense fog is very likely in isolated pockets over West UP in the morning hours of Thursday.
Cold wave conditions intensified in several parts of Uttar Pradesh, including Prayagraj, following last weeks' heavy rainfall in several parts of the state.
