Delhiites preferred to remain indoors as thick fog and cold conditions hit the normal life hard in the capital on Tuesday.
The minimum temperature slipped to eight degree Celsius from yesterday's minimum of 8.4 degree Celsius, the Met department said. Yesterday's maximum temperature was recorded at 20.8 degree Celsius, one degree less than the normal at this point of the season.
What added to the woes was the cold wind and the thick blanket of fog that engulfed the city skyline.

The weatherman said similar condition will be witnessed tomorrow also with the maximum temperature hovering around 20 degree Celsius and the minimum around eight degrees. There will be thick fog till noon tomorrow.
