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.
