New Delhi, Jan 1: Delhi ushered in the New Year with bone chilling cold and dense fog today with mercury plummeting to the season’s lowest of four degree Celsius, prompting people to wrap themselves up in more woollens. 



Today’s minimum was three degree Celsius below normal and down from the previous day’s minimum of 5.5 degrees, which was the previous lowest for the season.

Yesterday, the maximum was recorded at 13.3 degree Celsius, making it the coldest day.  

Mercury at the lowest and icy winds made the city colder than usual in the morning hours with Weatherman predicting similar weather conditions for tomorrow.  

Dense fog also enveloped the city in the morning hours affecting road and rail traffic as well as operations at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here.

The visibility dropped to near zero level.

The previous two New Years were a ‘warm’ affair for the capital as minimum temperature were at above normal levels.  

Last year, the minimum was 8.4 degree Celsius, one degree above normal and in 2011, it was 11 degrees, four degrees above normal.

“It is an icy feeling because of the wind. But it is nice,” said Sharmista Mathur, an executive with a accounting firm.
