Cold wave continues in Delhi

January 15, 2007 11:47 IST

Cold wave continued to grip the national capital on Monday as minimum temperature dipped to 4.8 degree celsius, two degrees below normal.

The minimum temperature on Sunday was 5.7 degree celsius.

A thin blanket of mist engulfed the capital early on Monday morning and air traffic remained unaffected.

The runway visibility range at the Indira Gandhi International Airport was around 1,000 metres and all flights operated on schedule, airport sources said.

The visibility was around 200 metres in Safdarjung in the morning but improved later in the day.

The Met department predicted a partly cloudy sky and minimum temperature at around 5 degree celsius on Tuesday.

The capital has been under the grip of intense cold wave conditions for the last three to four days with the season's lowest temperature of 2.6 degree celsius being recorded on January 8.
