Winter hasn’t gone yet, says weathermanFebruary 1st, 2009 - 12:49 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Feb 1 (IANS) Don’t pack up your woollens just yet, caution weather officials as they predict another cold spell in the capital city. After weeks of temperatures remaining well above normal, Delhi finally recorded normal temperatures Sunday, a met official said.
While the minimum temperature was 8 degrees Celsius, the maximum was recorded at 23 degrees Celsius.
“This is normal because in the first week of February, the maximum and minimum are usually around 22 degrees and 9 degrees Celsius,” an official at the Safdarjung met office said.
“There will be one more winter spell in the coming weeks,” the official added.
The met department has forecast mist and shallow fog in the morning and clear sky in the day in the next couple of days.
“There is also no likelihood of rain for at least two to three days,” the official said.
General visibility stayed above 1,000 meters and domestic and international flights at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) were on time as visibility on all runways was clear, an airport official said.
