Due to  a cold wave on Saturday, parts of Madhya Pradesh including state capital Bhopal experienced chilly weather. The winds came from the North, the India Meteorological Department's (IMD)  Bhopal office said.

The lowest minimum temperature of 4 degrees Celsius was recorded in the state in the districts of Gwalior, Datia and in Nowgaon area of Chhatarpur district, said P K Saha, a senior meteorologist at IMD Bhopal office.

Besides Bhopal, Seoni, Dhar and Ratlam districts experienced a "severe cold day" while Guna, Rajgarh and the tourist hotspot Khajuraho had a "cold day" on Saturday, he said.

As per the IMD, a `cold day' is one when the minimum temperature drops to 10 degrees Celsius or below and the normal maximum temperature dips by 4.5 degrees Celsius or more.
A day is defined as "severe cold" when the normal maximum temperature drops by 6.5 degrees Celsius or more.
