“Without the humidity or cloudiness, the heat was not retained on the surface and escaped during the night. and the early morning, making them even colder. Which can continue to be perceived throughout the day. The lack of cloud cover, the system’s cold wind, and the cold air mass from the north accelerated this cooling, creating extremely low conditions,” he further explained.
