Delhi receives light rains; dense fog predicted in next 48 hours


Delhiites on Friday woke up to continuous light rains in some parts of the national capital, which lead to a drop in mercury, bringing the minimum temperature down to 9 degrees Celsius. However, the incessant rains did not bring a respite in the pollution levels as the overall air quality index remains in the ‘poor’ category. Meanwhile, 12 trains have been delayed in the Northern Railway region due to low visibility caused by dense fog.

The hailstorm across the northern plains has led to the plummeting of mercury in the national capital. India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted partly cloudy sky today with moderate to dense fog in the next 48 hours.
