"Due to adverse weather conditions (fog) at #Delhi, few of our flights have been affected," tweeted Jet Airways.

The national capital recorded its coldest December temperature in the past 12 years on Monday with mercury dipping to 3.7 degrees Celsius.

The meteorological department has installed a ceilometer at the Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) to help measure depth of fog this winter. In addition to the ceilometer, the meteorological department will also use a microwave radiometer this year for accurate fog detection. A trial run of the system was conducted last year.
