January is the coldest month in Jalandhar. On bright sunny days, the average daily maximum temperature hovers around 19 oC but on cloudy or foggy days, the temperature may not go above 6 oC. The cold waves, a usual occurrence here, lead to the further lowering of temperature, sometimes going below 0 oC. A short spell of drizzling or rain may occur during the days of the conference.
Participants are advised to carry winter clothings to keep themselves warm. When moving out, the cold breeze may sometimes call for a muffler to keep the ears and nose from catching cold. Should there be a light drizzle, a folding umbrella will help you stay dry while moving about the campus on your own.
