New Delhi, Jan 18 (UNI) After a week of winter sunshine, the capital experienced chilly weather today with the mercury plunging to 7.5 Degrees Celsius.
The minimum temperature fell by seven degrees from yesterday's 14 Degrees Celsius, causing a nip in the air and ending a nearly week-long spell of warm weather in Delhi.
The maximum temperature also fell three degrees below normal at 17.8 Degrees Celsius.
The Met department attributed the sudden shift in weather to the Western Disturbances crossing Jammu and Kashmir and blowing of strong North Westerlies.
Visibility levels were recorded at 1500m.
The nip in the air could continue for the next few days with the minimum temperature likely to dip to five degrees C tomorrow.
The Met office has forecast a partly cloudy sky and mist/shallow fog in the morning.
