New Delhi: Clear days in the capital is likely
to come to an end with the MeT office predicting formation of
dense fog in the next two days.

The second foggy spell has started over eastern parts of
the northern plains from last night and may stay for two
nights and also spread towards Delhi and Haryana, a senior MeT
official said.
Delhi has so far remained unaffected with fog as the
conditions have not been suitable for dense fog, the official
said.

"Based on observations of satellite photographs and MeT
station data of last 24 hours, plains of Bihar and most of
Uttar Pradesh were found to be under dense cover of fog,
visibility reducing below 100 metres, last night which stayed
till this morning," RK Jenamani, Director, Airport MeT
Department said.

Delhi airport also witnessed slight fog this morning and
the runway visibility dipped to 600 metres but no flights were
affected.

But chances are high that dense fog may form over IGI
airport in the morning hours, between 0700-0900 hours, thus
reducing runway visual range to CAT-III level in next 48
hours, he said, adding this is the second dense fog spell over
the region after 19-23 November.

Meanwhile, the MeT office has forecast light rain or
thundershowers towards the evening tomorrow. The maximum and
minimum would remain around 29 and 15 degrees Celsius.
Today, the maximum temperature was recorded at 27.4 deg C,
three notches above normal while the minimum settled at 14
degrees, five degrees above normal.
