Delhi wakes up to cold, foggy morning on Thursday with the minimum temperature settling at 8 degrees Celsius while maximum at 21 degree celsius. Visibility was reduced to 200 metres in areas covered by Palam and 800 metres by Safdarjung weather stations due to "shallow" fog, at 8.30 AM, said a MeT department official.

The Air Quality Index was recorded at 177. An AQI between 0-50 is considered "good", 51-100 "satisfactory", 101-200 "moderate", 201-300 "poor", 301-400 "very poor" and 401-500 "severe".

 

 

Owing to the low visibility 20 north-bound trains were running late by 1-3 hours, said a Northern Railway spokesperson.
