Delhi Recorded 3.8 Degrees Celsius and Woke Up To The Coldest Morning This Winter; High Winds Affect Airplanes and Trains

People in Delhi are shivering this winter as the temperature drops every two days. Not only is it cold and freezing in winter, but the city is often blanketed in fog. Residents of the nation’s capital woke up to the coldest morning of the winter on Friday. The minimum temperature dropped to 3.8°C. Delhi saw the coldest morning this winter

On the X platform (formerly Twitter), Capt_Ck (@Capt_Ck) shared a video of Delhi’s streets covered in sky.

The city was completely covered in fog this morning. Conditions became so severe that visibility dropped to zero and eventually disrupted regular flights and trains. Fog blankets many parts of Delhi, delaying air and rail services. According to the Railways, 23 trains from different parts of India arrived in Delhi delayed due to wind. These trains were not late as they were about 6 hours late.

About an hour ago, Delhi Airport (@DelhiAirport) shared an update on the current status of flights at the airport.

Visibility is zero at the Indira Gandhi International Airport. This disrupted flight schedules on Friday. Rain in the forest delays flights arriving and departing from the airport by several hours. The delay is about 1-4 hours, according to an India Today report. In a recent announcement, the airport said that the landings and cancellations are continuing and there is a high possibility that non-CAT I flights will be affected.

Foggy Conditions Predicted To Continue In The Next Few Days
