The meteorological department on Tuesday issued a warning for heavy rains over the next two days in Himachal Pradesh, even as very light rainfall occurred at a few places in the state.
The Shimla MeT Centre issued a 'yellow' warning for heavy rainfall in plains and low and middle hills of the state on Wednesday and Thursday, an official said.
The colour-coded warnings are issued to alert the public ahead of severe or hazardous weather which has the potential to cause "damage, widespread disruption and/or danger to life."
'Yellow' is the least dangerous of all the weather warnings.
Some places in the state have been receiving very light rainfall since Monday evening, a MeT department official.
He said the lowest temperature in the state was recorded in Keylong at 8 degrees Celsius.
