As per a report in PTI, the Safdarjung Observatory, which provides representative data for the city, recorded a minimum of 3.4 degrees Celsius, five notches below the normal, on Sunday morning.

The maximum temperature is likely to settle around 22 degrees Celsius, PTI quoted a Met official as saying.

This comes even as protesting farmers at Delhi borders remain firm in their demands of repealing Centre’s new agricultural laws.

The farmers’ agitation, which has entered its fourth week, has also led to traffic diversions at various border points causing inconvenience to commuters.

Ever since the agitation began, the Delhi Traffic Police has been constantly putting up updates on Twitter to alert commuters about the closure of certain roads and suggested them to take alternative routes.

According to the traffic police, Tikri and Dhansa borders are closed for any traffic movement. The Jhatikara Border is open only for two-wheelers and pedestrians.

However, for those travelling to Haryana, the Delhi Traffic Police said some borders are opened — the Jharoda border (only for single carriageway), Daurala, Kapashera, Badusarai, Rajokri NH 8, Bijwasan/Bajghera, Palam Vihar and Dundahera.
