Fog Update: As Delhi and rest of North India is slowly moving towards their lowest minimum temperature of the season thus far, temperatures in Kashmir fell below zero degrees at night. In some areas of north India, the cold conditions grew worse, and dense fog engulfed many states.
When visibility is severely reduced, it can have a negative effect on air, rail, and road transportation. However, the North Western Railway authorities are presently installing Visibility Test Objects at all stations in the region that are impacted by fog, as well as outfitting loco pilots with fog safety gear, in an effort to lessen the disruption in fog-prone railway sections.
The national capital is likely to continue to be covered in fog today, according to the IMD. The visibility is expected to be significantly reduced in the morning and even more so at night, according to the IMD. Shallow fog will cause visibility to drop to 1000 M during early morning.
The capital of UP is following the same pattern as Delhi, according to the most recent fog update. Along with persistently severe cold issues, heavy fogs continue to dampen the city. The visibility will drop to 1500M in the early morning and evenings, according to the most recent update.
In shallow fog, visibility could drop to 600 M. Nevertheless, as the morning goes on, it is anticipated to get better as it will reach a value of 2500M in the early morning. Similar weather is expected to continue for several days in the city.
Fog won’t have an impact on the city for today, according to IMD. Jaipur will continue to be affected by this occurrence, but it is unclear how long.
