Severe To Extremely Dense Fog Expected

From Punjab to East Uttar Pradesh, across Haryana-Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, extreme north Rajasthan, and north Madhya Pradesh, the fog layer’s extension (grey-coloured portion) was visible. For the next three to four days, the Northwest and portions of neighbouring Central India are likely to have severe to extremely dense fog.

The nation’s capital and the surrounding areas were blanketed in thick fog on Thursday morning. This made it difficult to see on the roadways and caused delays for many trains and airplanes. In the thick fog, passengers were observed forming lines at the Indira Gandhi International Airport gate. The fog affected about 134 aircraft, both inbound and outbound (domestic and international). 

The airport had delays for 35 international flight departures and 28 international arrivals. Okay. However, there were 28 domestic arrivals and 43 domestic departures that were delayed. Due to poor visibility, up to 22 trains at the New Delhi Railway Station had several-hour delays.
