Delhi experiences coldest day

NEW DELHI, Jan 4 (UNI) The national Capital today experienced the coldest day with the maximum temperature coming down to 12.4C, 10 degrees below normal.

Meteorological office sources said here that the minimum temperature was 9.3C. Cold conditions prevailed throughout the day which aggravated the cold.

The entire northern region is in the grip of a severe cold wave for the past three days. Yesterday, the maximum temperature was 13.5C which has reduced further due to cloudy conditions. This happens as the dense fog converts into cloud, the sources said.

Meanwhile, after two days of disruption, all domestic and international flights left on schedule from here this morning but several trains were rescheduled due to persistent fog in other parts of North India.

With no fog in the Capital this morning, the flights left as scheduled and there was no cancellation or diversion. Three domestic flights were cancelled and several others were diverted as a thick blanket of fog enveloped the city yesterday.

JAIPUR: Mercury dipped to 0C in Mount Abu, while night temperature remained 1-2 degrees below normal at most places making people shiver in Rajasthan on Thursday.

Jaipur, Udaipur and Chittorgarh recorded 5C.

HAJIPUR (Bihar): Four persons died due to the cold wave in Vishali since Wednesday.

Official sources said on Thursday that two children lost their lives at Baligaon village while one woman died at Patepur and another at the Jandaha area.

Temperature falls in Punjab
