In addition, as a cold wave swept northwest India, the minimum temperature in the capital city fell to 1.4 degrees Celsius, the lowest temperature this season, and residents of Delhi and neighboring areas woke up after a chilly morning.

The lowest temperature in national capital has dropped by nearly 9 degrees in two days. Yesterday was 4.7 degrees, Sunday was 10.2 degrees.

Today’s Delhi temperature is the lowest for January since 2021. The city’s base station, the Safdarjung Observatory, recorded the lowest temperature of 1.1 degrees Celsius on January 1, 2021.

A senior meteorologist said the city’s lowest temperature could drop by as much as 1 degree Celsius tomorrow.

Cold spells and foggy weather also prevailed in parts of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

In Haryana, Hisar recorded the lowest temperature of 0.8 degrees Celsius, while Punjab’s Amritsar saw the temperature drop to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The lowest temperature in Churu, located near the Thar Desert, recorded -2.5 degrees Celsius, the lowest in the plains.

Due to the chilly weather, Chandigarh, Udaipur in Rajasthan and Meerut in Uttar Pradesh have extended their winter break for students up to Year 8.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted that the strong cold wave will continue for the next three days.

Lowest temperatures are expected to drop another 2 degrees Celsius over the next two days in parts of northwest and central India, after which it will rise slightly by 3 to 5 degrees Celsius from Wednesday night.

Dense fog conditions in parts of northern India reduced visibility and delayed several trains.

A high-ranking official from the Korea Meteorological Administration said, “Daytime temperatures in the capital are expected to be normal.” “The cold wave situation in Delhi will prevail at night and early in the morning,” he said. “This cold wave is incomparable to the previous ones.”

Previously, from January 5 to January 9, the second longest cold wave in 10 years raged in Delhi.

The city has so far recorded about 50 hours of heavy fog in January, the most for the month since 2019.
