Delhi Weather Cold Wave:
A senior official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Tuesday that Delhi has witnessed about 50 hours of dense fog so far in January. This month is the highest since 2019. IMD senior scientist RK Jenamani also said that the cold wave in Delhi in January this year was the longest in 10 years. In 2013, Delhi recorded a minimum temperature equal to or less than 4 degree Celsius on 7 days (January 3 to January 9), he said. Whereas on January 6, the minimum temperature was recorded at 1.9 degree Celsius.

According to IMD data, this year the national capital recorded a cold wave from January 5 to 9, with the minimum temperature recorded at 1.9 degrees Celsius on January 8. Jenamani said Delhi has recorded about 50 hours of dense fog so far this month, which is the highest since 2019. The senior meteorologist attributed a large gap between the two western disturbances to a prolonged spell of intense cold.

Due to dense fog, the maximum temperature in the city so far this month has been below normal. Lower day temperatures mean early cooling and early evening fog formation, he said. The Safdarjung Observatory recorded a minimum temperature of 3.8 degrees Celsius on Monday, 1.9 degrees Celsius on Sunday, 2.2 degrees Celsius on Saturday, 4 degrees Celsius on Friday and 3 degrees Celsius on Thursday. For the fifth consecutive day on Monday, the minimum temperature in Delhi remained lower than most hill stations in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

Since early January, cold weather in Delhi has put pressure on electricity grids and presented challenges for the homeless. In view of the increasing cold, the Delhi government extended the winter vacation in all schools till January 15. According to the Met Office, ‘very dense fog’ occurs when visibility is between 0 and 50 metres, and between 51 and 200 metres, it is ‘dense’, between 201 and 500 metres, ‘moderate’.
