New Delhi: Another day of chilly winds awoke the people of Delhi on Wednesday morning as the minimum temperature was recorded at 3.6 degrees Celsius at Safdarjung Observatory, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) stated at 8.30 AM today.

An orange alert was issued by the weather department yesterday as the cold wave brought down temperatures in the northern belt, including Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

Last week, Delhi had been registering above normal temperatures due to a cloud cover bringing rains to the capital city under the influence of successive Western Disturbances.

However, the IMD has said that the cold conditions are expected to intensify further in the coming days. Moderate to dense fog has been forecasted over the capital city on Thursday and Friday, an IMD official said.

Delhi's minimum temperature settled at 4.3 degrees Celsius on Tuesday, three notches below normal, while it was 7 degrees Celsius on Monday and 7.8 degrees Celsius on Sunday.

Meanwhile, cold wave conditions continued unabated in parts of Rajasthan with the state's only hill station Mount Abu freezing at sub-zero temperatures today. Similar conditions were witnessed in Haryana and Punjab as well.
