Delhi is witness to an extremely cold December month this year. If the India Meteorological Department is to be believed, this is the longest spell of winters in Delhi since the last 22 years. Very dense fog engulfed Delhi-NCR in the early hours of Monday, while several trains and flights were delayed. Vehicles were seen crawling at minimum speed on highways, while streets wore a deserted view due to extreme cold conditions. The minimum temperature in Delhi as on Monday morning was recorded as 2.8 degrees Celsius.
The weatherman has also forecast light rains in the national capital from January 1 to 3, 2020. Hailstorms are also expected to lash the region on January 2. Delhi had recorded the season's coldest day on Saturday with the minimum temperature dropping to 2.4 degrees Celsius.
Meanwhile, Delhiites took to Twitter and shared pictures and videos of fog engulfing streets of Delhi-NCR.

Driving a nightmare given the usual anarchy on the roads and of course the surprises left behind by our local authorities who don't believe in the last mile.

दिल्ली वाले सड़क पर सतर्क रहें.. सड़कों पर ट्रैफिक बुरी तरह जाम है ओर मेट्रो भी आज बहुत धीमी है।
