The Meteorological Department said the minimum temperature in the state capital was recorded at 3.7 degrees Celsius while it settled at 2.5 degrees Celsius in Una.

Manali was shivering at the freezing point. The MeT department has forecast snowfall and rains at most places in the state till tomorrow due to western disturbances.
