Delhi coldest in 44 years.
The Meteorological Department has announced that this is the first time in past 44 years when Delhi's maximum temperature fell below 10 degrees celcius. While the maximum temperature fell to 9.8 degrees celcius on Wednesday, the minimum temperature recorded was four degrees celcius in the Indian Capital.
An official of the regional Meteorological Centre said that a changing wind pattern is expected during the next two days, which is likely to increase the day temperature by two to three degrees celcius.
Besides the chilly winds, dense fog in morning and evening hours has been playing a spoilsport leading to delay or cancellation of flights, both domestic and international, and trains.
Thursday is the third day that Delhi did not see the sun. (end) py.asa KUNA 031238 Jan 13NNNN
