Delhi has been suffering under a bout of bad weather. The national capital has been braving a cold wave that has hit the north, with an addition of dense fog. Monday proved to be an exceptionally cold day for Delhi with a heavy fog that blanketed the entire area region and put a snag on transportation.

Due to the bad weather conditions in the national capital, 18 flights were cancelled and 15 trains were delayed on Monday itself. While light showers helped in dissipating the fog on Monday, travelling to and from Delhi will remain a hassle because of the weather conditions in the north.

What's the update?

The dense fog and the bad weather conditions in Delhi became the reason for passengers being stranded at airports and waiting at railway stations. The weather conditions made it difficult for people to travel to and fro from the city as several flights were cancelled and trains delayed.

The Malda-Delhi Farakka Express was delayed by 6 hours, while the Chennai-New Delhi GT Express was delayed by 5 hours. Azamgarh-Delhi Kaifiyat Express, Katihar-Amritsar Express, New Jalpaiguri-Udaipur Express and Puri-New Delhi Purishottam Express were among the Delhi bound trains delayed due to bad weather.

18 Flights departing from Delhi airport were also cancelled because of the prevailing bad weather conditions in North India. Fresh snowfall in the mountains and rains in the plains made sure that temperature would not cross 10 degree mark.

Rainfall is expected again in Delhi on 16th and 17th of January, while an orange alert has been issued in Himachal Pradesh. The weather conditions do not seem to let up, hence rail and air travel in Delhi is expected to remain hit for a few days.
