Delhi continues to shiver under below normal temperatures

January 25, 2006 13:12 IST

Icy cold winds continued to hit Delhi Wednesday bringing the mercury down to below normal levels in the city and its adjoining areas, which were covered by a thin layer of smog.

North westerly winds, blowing for the last two days, kept the chill in the air as the minimum temperature was recorded at 7.3C, one degree below normal during this time of the season, the weather office said.

The minimum temperature Tuesday was 6.4C, two degrees below normal.

A thin layer of smog enveloped parts of Delhi, which had experienced balmy weather for most of last week when maximum temperatures touched 27C.

The maximum temperature recorded Wednesday morning was 21.0C, they said.

There were no reports of delays in air operations and all morning flights departed from Delhi on time, airport officials said.

Rail services continued to be affected with a few Delhi-bound trains running behind schedule.

Katihar-Delhi AST-KIR Express and Darbhanga-Delhi Saryuyamuna Express was running late by over six hours and five hours respectively, while Chennai-New Delhi G T Express was late by over four hours, Northern Railway said.
