Cold wave conditions intensify in Delhi

Last Updated: Sunday, January 17, 2010 - 21:53

New Delhi: Foggy and overcast sky prevailed
throughout the day in the national capital, intensifying the
cold wave condition and disrupting rail, air and road traffic.

The heavy cover of fog which has downed the visibility to
less than 50 metres at 5.30 AM disrupted the schedules of
around 30 domestic and international flights. Road traffic was
also affected by the fog as the maximum visibility was
recorded at only 500 metres.

The cold condition intensified as the maximum temperature
dipped to 14.3 degree Celsius from yesterday`s 17.5 degree C.
The minimum temperature was recorded at 7.7 degrees Celsius,
same as yesterday.

Today`s maximum temperature was seven degrees below
normal at this point of time in the year.

The Met department attributed the cold wave spell to the
icy winds blowing from the snow-capped mountains in Himachal
Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.

The weatherman predicted that there will be thick fog in
the morning and mainly clear sky in the day tomorrow while
temperature will oscillate between seven and 17 degrees
Celsius.
