North and northwest India have continued to reel under a cold wave as dense fog adversely affected air, rail, and road traffic. Meteorologists attribute the long spell of intense cold to a large gap between two western disturbances, which meant frosty winds from the snow-clad mountains blew in for a longer-than-usual period.

The foggy weather has reduced visibility on highways, resulting in road accidents.

On Tuesday, Delhi's temperature stood at 8 degrees Celsius and the visibility was 0.1 kilometers. The air quality in the national capital plunged to 418 on 10 January. Dense to very dense fog was also observed over parts of Punjab, Northwest Rajasthan, Jammu division, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Tripura on Tuesday.

News agency ANI reported that around 40 flights have been delayed at Delhi airport due to weather conditions on 10 January. There was no flight diversion reported till 7 am. Flights that were delayed today morning include- Delhi-Kathmandu, Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Shimla, Delhi-Dehradun, Delhi-Chandigarh-Kullu.
