New Delhi, Dec 19: Delhiites on Wednesday witnessed a cold morning with minimum temperature dropping to 5.2 degrees Celsius, three notches below the season’s average as the air quality remained ‘very poor’.

The Met department has forecast a cold wave in the city for the next two days till Friday.

On Tuesday, the minimum temperature was recorded at 5.1 degrees Celsius — the coldest December night since 2015.

According to IMD officials, the main reasons behind the unusual drop in Tuesday’s minimum temperature was clear skies and strong cold winds blowing over Delhi due to heavy snowfall in parts of northwest India.

“Mist covered Delhi skies in the morning but the rest of the day will be clear without any signs of clouds. Haze or smoke will appear later in the day when the temperature drops,” an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official told news agency IANS.

The humidity at 8.30 a.m. was 97 per cent — a condition considered unfavourable for pollutants to disperse.

Experts advised against any outdoor activity early morning and after sunset, and to wear N-95 or P-100 respirators when stepping out.

The maximum temperature was expected to reach 23 degrees Celsius. Tuesday’s maximum temperature was also the same, normal for this time of the year.
