Record 3 Degrees, Power Grids Under Strain

The cold snap is expected to strain power grids and create challenges for the homeless.

New Delhi:

A brutal cold spell swept through Delhi on Thursday and the minimum temperature dropped to a season’s minimum of three degrees Celsius. As frigid winds from the snow-capped Himalayas sweep through the plains including the national capital, city dwellers are said to be confining themselves to the comforts of their homes.

Around 5:30 am, the city’s visibility level was reported at 50 meters.

The Safdarjung observatory, Delhi’s primary meteorological centre, recorded a low of three degrees Celsius against Wednesday’s 4.4 degrees Celsius and Tuesday’s 8.5 degrees Celsius.

The weather stations at Lodhi Road, Ayanagar and Ridge recorded minimum temperatures of 2.8 degrees Celsius, 2.2 degrees Celsius and 2.8 degrees Celsius respectively.

The cold snap is expected to strain power grids and create challenges for the homeless.

The Met office on Wednesday issued an orange alert for Delhi-NCR for Thursday and Friday.

The India Meteorological Department uses four color codes for weather alerts — green (no action required), yellow (watch and stay updated), orange (be prepared) and red (take action).
