Meteorologists attributed the sharp drop in day temperatures to frigid north westerly winds barrelling through the plains and reduced sunshine due to foggy weather.

The weather department had also predicted dense to very dense fog in Delhi and nearby regions.

“Due to prevailing light wind and high moisture in lower tropospheric levels, Dense to Very Dense Fog very likely to continue over some parts of Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh & Delhi and West Rajasthan during the next 48 hours,” the IMD said on Monday.

Delhi on Sunday recorded a minimum temperature of 5.3 degrees Celsius while most parts of northern India, witnessed temperatures in a range between 3 degrees Celsius to 7 degrees Celsius, said IMD on Monday.
