Delhi woke up to dense fog on Wednesday morning, which the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said is due to reduced wind speed. The temperature on Wednesday morning was 7 degrees Celsius.

The visibility was below 200 metres. Delhi airport officials said that five flights have been diverted due to bad weather, as the pilots were not trained to land under low visibility (CAT III ) conditions.

In a tweet, Delhi airport informed the passengers about the low visibility which might affect the flight departures. “Flight departure may be affected due to low visibility. Passengers are requested to contact the airline concerned for updated flight information. Any inconvenience caused is regretted,” the tweet read.

Twenty-two trains in the northern region are also running late, according to news agency ANI.

The situation is likely to continue till 10 am to 11 am and improve thereafter, the IMD said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, calm winds and cloud cover led to an increase in pollution levels on Tuesday. The overall air quality index stood at 364 at 4 pm, up from 269 recorded on Monday.
