However, KS Hosalikar, from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had earlier taken to Twitter to inform that the maximum temperature is likely to see a decline in northern and parts of central India from December 11-12.

In addition, areas of South Konkan and South Gujarat are also touted to get light rains.
