As North India continues to be in the clutches of cold conditions and dense fog, residents are urged to exercise caution while navigating the foggy streets. Delhi residents woke up to bone-chilling temperatures and dense fog on Tuesday morning. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported that many parts of North India including the national capital Delhi and Lucknow, were shrouded in cold conditions and thick fog.

On Monday, Delhi experienced its coldest day of the month so far with the minimum temperature plummeting to 6 degrees Celsius. The chilly weather persisted into Tuesday morning reinforcing the winter chill across the region.

The IMD highlighted that visibility in several parts of North India was severely affected, with readings ranging from 25 to 500 metres. At 5:30 am, specific visibility figures were reported, emphasizing the challenging conditions faced by residents. In Uttar Pradesh, Bareilly, Varanasi (Babatpur), and Gorakhpur recorded visibility at 25 metres each, while Jhansi, Lucknow, and Varanasi reported 50 metres each. Sultanpur registered relatively better visibility at 500 metres. Rajasthan faced similar challenges, with Jaisalmer at 50 metres, Churu and Kota at 200 metres each, and Jaipur at 500 metres. In Bihar, Purnia recorded 50 metres, and Gaya reported 200 metres.

To provide a clearer understanding of the severity of fog conditions IMD uses a visibility scale. According to this scale, ‘very dense’ fog occurs when visibility is between 0 and 50 metres, ‘dense’ when it ranges from 51 to 200 metres, ‘moderate’ between 201 and 500 metres, and ‘shallow’ from 501 to 1,000 metres.

For the national capital the weather department has predicted a generally cloudy sky for Tuesday. There is also a possibility of light rain or drizzle.
