Wrap up for a chilly New Year’s Eve

December 30, 2009

Those planning to spend the New Year’s Eve partying should wrap up well. The met department has predicted a further dip in the temperature and a foggy night.

The mercury is likely to plummet to 5 degrees Celsius on Dec 31.

“The temperature will oscillate between 5 and 22 degrees Celsius,” an official of the India Meteorological Department told IANS.

The chilly weather will be coupled with a “foggy” morning and evening and a “partly cloudy sky” during the day.

“Fog is going to persist in the capital for the next couple of days with visibility reduced considerably,” the official added.

On Wednesday morning, office goers had to drive cautiously as fog reduced visibility to 300 metres.

The minimum temperature in the capital dropped to 5.2 degrees Celsius, same as the season’s lowest so far. The maximum temperature Wednesday is expected to hover around 21 degrees Celsius.

The drop came after a relatively warm morning Tuesday which recorded a minimum temperature of 6.2 degrees Celsius.

On Saturday the temperature had dipped to 5.2 degrees Celsius for the first time this winter.
