Shimla: An intense cold will intensify in Himachal Pradesh as the Met office forecast chances of more rainfall and snowfall in the state from Friday.

"A western disturbance is very likely to affect the Western Himalayan region from November 9," an official statement said.

The western disturbances -- storm systems originating from Caspian Sea and moving across the Afghanistan-Pakistan region -- will be active in the region till November 13, a Met official told IANS.

Most tourist hubs like Shimla, Narkanda, Kufri, Manali and Dalhousie, located in mid-hills, may witness rains but high-altitude areas like Kalpa and Chitkul in Kinnaur district and Keylong in Lahaul-Spiti district can have moderate snowfall, the weatherman added.

Meanwhile, Shimla, which has been witnessing sunny conditions, saw a low of 9.7 degrees Celsius. The maximum stayed at 19.9 degrees.

Manali in Kullu district, about 250 km from here, was cold at 0.6 degrees.

Keylong in Lahaul and Spiti district was the coldest place in the state at minus 6.5 degrees Celsius. It saw snow on November 4.

It was 3 degrees in Kalpa and 9 degrees in Dharamsala town.
