New Delhi: Dense fog blinded the national capital on Friday on a chilly morning making life tough for Delhiites as it slowed down the movement of vehicles on road and disrupted air and rail traffic.

The minimum temperature was recorded at 8.6 degree Celsius, two degrees above normal, early this morning, while the maximum temperature was recorded 19.3 degree Celsius, one degree less than normal, the MeT Department said.

Fog descended on the capital and the visibility on roads fell to near zero level in the morning which improved a little bit later in the day. Dense fog made it difficult for motorists to drive through the capital.

Drivers switched on fog lights to negotiate through Delhi streets.

The dense fog had some effect on the operations at the Indira Gandhi International Airport where around 15 flights were delayed.

The dense fog also affected rail traffic delaying several trains in the capital.

The Weatherman has predicted thunderstorms with rain tomorrow with temperature oscillating between 11 and 20 degree Celsius.

The MeT office predicted fog tomorrow as well and said tomorrow's maximum and minimum temperature would be between 20 and 12 degree Celsius.
