During the month of January, dense to very dense fog had remained far away from many parts of the country. Only a few pockets had been seeing the visibility dropping to nil.
However, January 26 onward, dense to very dense fog once again made a comeback over most parts of Indo Gangetic Plains including Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, North Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
Now, due to the strengthening of lower level winds, the fog has once again reduced from most parts of the country. However, many parts of Bihar and foothills of Uttar Pradesh continued to witness dense to very dense fog today morning.
This prevailing fog over North and East India were responsible for the presence of cold day conditions over many parts of Punjab, Haryana, and North Bihar.
Now, due to a decrease in fog intensity, sunshine hours have increased over all these places and cold day conditions have abated North India. However, isolated pockets of east Uttar Pradesh and Bihar continue with cold day conditions.
As per weathermen at Skymet Weather, dense fog may not make a comeback over North India for at least next 3 to 4 days. Thus, day temperatures are expected to increase further over the Northern Plains.
