New Delhi: It was a sunny but cold
morning for Delhiites on Wednesday as the minimum temperature
remained below the normal level while a layer of fog covered
the city skylines in the early hours.

The low was recorded at 5.8 degree Celsius, a degree
below normal for this time of the season but 1.4 degree C more
than yesterday`s 4.4 degree Celsius.

There was a shallow fog cover for sometime early in
the morning.

The maximum day temperature in the last 24 hours was
recorded at 22.7 degrees Celsius, which is two degrees above
normal.

The weatherman said there will be shallow fog in the
morning tomorrow and the minimum and maximum ranging between 7
degrees and 20 degrees, respectively.

Delhi has experienced pleasant weather in the past
few days despite icy winds blowing across the city.

The mercury had risen to 24.3 degrees Celsius last
week.

The weatherman had earlier said that warm weather
conditions would be short-lived, and mercury could dip over
the weekend following snowfall in the Himalayan region and
rains in the foothills.

The piercing chill and icy winds that had persisted for
several days cleared away on Monday when the maximum
temperature rose to 19.2 degrees Celsius, after keeping below
15 degrees for almost a week.

The capital has recorded at least five cold-related
deaths since December 26.
