The national capital city of India, Delhi and its adjoining areas are under the grip of cold wave conditions since the past one week. In fact, few areas of Delhi-NCR are even experiencing severe cold wave conditions.
Since the last eight consecutive days, the minimum temperatures over Delhi are being recorded below 5 degrees Celsius. Today also, Delhi’s Safdarjung Observatory recorded its maximum temperature 4 degrees below normal at 3.4˚C, which was also the lowest minimum of the season.
However, the days are observing pleasant weather conditions which maximum temperatures settling around 20˚C with clear sky and light winds. But a sudden drop in temperatures is witnessed after the sun sets and evening starts making its arrival.
Now, as no significant weather system is likely to affect the plains of North India any time soon, we expect similar weather conditions to prevail over Delhi-NCR region. In fact, further drop in minimum temperatures is likely and cold wave conditions will continue to prevail over most parts of Delhi-NCR.
Moreover, the combination of low temperatures and light winds have also triggered fog in many parts of Delhi-NCR with dense fog in few pockets. Along with this, pollution levels of Delhi have once again come under severe to very poor category.
Thus, we can say that in the coming days and even on New Year’s eve, Delhi-NCR region is likely to stay under the grip of cold wave conditions which may even become severe and no relief from the ongoing severe pollution.
