In Delhi, the temperature is 1.4 degrees Celsius, the lowest in January since 2021, and it may drop to 1 tomorrow.
People in Delhi and its surrounding districts awoke to a chilly morning, with the national capital’s minimum temperature plunging to 1.4 degrees Celsius – the lowest so far this season – as another cold wave swept over northwest India.
In just two days, the national capital’s lowest temperature had plummeted by almost nine degrees. Yesterday it was 4.7 degrees Celsius, and on Sunday it was 10.2 degrees Celsius.
The temperature in Delhi today is the lowest in January since 2021. On January 1, 2021, the Safdarjung observatory, the city’s base station, reported a low temperature of 1.1 degrees Celsius.
According to a professional meteorologist, the city’s lowest temperature might drop to one degree Celsius tomorrow. Cold weather and fog occurred throughout Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and portions of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Hisar, Haryana, had a low temperature of 0.8 degrees Celsius, while Amritsar, Punjab, had a low temperature of 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The cold weather has pushed Chandigarh and Meerut in Uttar Pradesh to prolong the winter holiday for children up to Class 8. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasts extreme cold wave conditions for the next three days.
Minimum temperatures are forecast to drop by approximately 2 degrees Celsius in numerous regions of northwest and central India during the next several days, before rising by 3 to 5 degrees Celsius starting Thursday. Dense fog in portions of north India reduced visibility, causing numerous trains to be delayed.
According to a top meteorological official, the daytime temperature in the national capital is forecast to be normal. “During the night and early morning hours in Delhi, cold wave conditions will persist. As a result, this cold snap cannot be compared to the previous one “He stated.
Previously, Delhi saw an extreme cold wave from January 5 to January 9, the second longest in the month in a decade. So far in January, the city has seen roughly 50 hours of intense fog, the most in a single month since 2019.
