2 min read

Several train and flight operations were disrupted as dense to very dense fog conditions prevailed over Delhi and parts of North India, including Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, early Thursday.

The fog conditions were accompanied by a cold wave which is likely to continue over some parts of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh over the next four days. Meanwhile, the minimum temperature in Delhi was recorded at 6.6 degrees Celsius.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), “jet stream winds of the order of 140-160 knots at 12.6 km above mean sea level are prevailing over the plains of North India. It is leading to subsidence of cold air and enhancing cold wave/cold day conditions over North India. Similar intensity of jet stream is likely to continue during next 5 days.”

About 18 trains arriving to Delhi from different parts of India were running late due to dense fog conditions, news agency ANI reported. Several flight operations were also delayed at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport due to low visibility amid fog conditions.

Visibility plunged to 25 metres in Punjab’s Amritsar and Patiala each, Haryana’s Ambala and Hisar, Bikaner, and Purnea. It was recorded to be 50 metres in Churu, Ganganagar, Palam, Safdarjung, Assam’s North Lakhimpur, and Ranchi.

Cold wave conditions are very likely to prevail in some parts of West Uttar Pradesh, northwest Madhya Pradesh, isolated pockets of Bihar, Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan on Thursday.

While mainly dry weather is likely to prevail over rest of the country, light to moderate rainfall is likely over Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, West Bengal, Sikkim and Northeast India.
