Dense fog in Amritsar drops visibility to zero for fist time in season, sunny day ahead

The northern plains of the country generally witness mercury slipping into single digit category during the month of December. These wintry conditions tighten grip even more during the second half of month, thereby resulting in rains and snowfall activities. Moreover, all these conditions are also considered favourable in forming dense fog over the plains of North India.

This winters, the city of Golden temple- Amritsar has recorded lowest of its temperatures in the plains of Punjab and Haryana. As of today, Amritsar in Punjab is the coldest city in plains of India, with its night temperature settling at 6℃.

Further, prevailing light winds, combined with low night temperatures have led to a dense layer of fog which engulfed the entire city since early morning hours. This has also been for the very first time in season that visibility over Amritsar has reduced to zero.

The situation has become even more poorer from aviation point of view. RVR (Runway Visual Range) had reduced to 50 mm, thereby hampering several flying operations since morning.

This foggy condition continued till 10:00 am in the morning, with visibility improving thereafter. Further, for remaining time of day, we expect sunny conditions to take over the city.

Foggy mornings would now be a regular affair for the city. Amritsar would invariably witness zero visibility for many days in a row. Slowly and steadily, foggy morning and chilly nights would grip rest parts of the northwestern plains as well.
