Icy winds coming from higher reaches of Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh resulted in sudden turn of weather in UP which so far has witnessed rather ‘warmer’ winters. Thick layer of fog and mist added to the chill affecting normal life to an extent as rail, road and air traffic was disrupted following inclement weather conditions.
