  • HASSLED Passengers stranded at Patna airport on Saturday

Dense fog engulfed the national capital region on New Year on Monday with the visibility dropping to zero. Most of the northwestern plains are in its grip.

At least 24 flights were delayed and over six cancelled. Five domestic and seven global flights were delayed due to the fog whereas one flight has been cancelled.

The mercury dipped to a minimum temperature of 5.7 degrees Celsius, and a maximum of 20 degrees, both a notch below the season's normal, the weather department said. Sunday's maximum temperature settled at 23.9 degrees Celsius, while the minimum was recorded at 6.4. This is also an improvement, as RVR was in the range of 50-100 metres in the last two days. The three-hour suspension of flight operations meant that it took hours for the backlog to clear. Flights were stopped from taking off between 11 p.m. and 12 a.m.as visibility was nil.
