Apart from the delays, over 10 trains including Gomti Express from Lucknow to Delhi were cancelled on account of foggy conditions, according to a statement by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation.

The India Meteorological Department recorded the temperature dipped to a minimum of minus 3.1 degrees Celsius in Jammu and Kashmir and few places in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

The Met also recorded cold wave conditions on Thursday in parts of North India including Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. On Wednesday, Delhi recorded its coldest day in the last four years after mercury dipped to 3.6 degrees Celsius.

“Cold weather combined with the availability of moisture will result in foggy conditions over Northwest India. This dense fog is likely to reduce visibility over Punjab, Haryana, North Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh resulting in difficulty for commuters in the morning and noon hours,” stated Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency.
