Alwar was recorded the coldest with 2.2 degree Celsius followed by 5 degrees in desert state's hill station Mount Abu, 6 degrees Celsius in Churu, 6.2 degree Celsius in Sriganganagar, 7 degrees Celsius in Sikar, and 7.7 degrees Celsius each in Pilani and Banasthali. Among other areas, the temperature was recorded 8.6 degrees Celsius in Swai Madhopur, 9.4 degrees Celsius in Jodhpur, 9.5 degrees Celsius in Bundi, and 9.9 degrees Celsius in Jaipur and Ajmer as well.
