At least 25 trains were reported running late, nine others were rescheduled and one was cancelled as a thick blanket of fog returned to Delhi on Tuesday morning.

Flight services were largely unaffected but 11 international flights and nine domestic flights were delayed at Delhi’s IGI airport on Tuesday morning, reports ANI.

The minimum and maximum temperature through the day is predicted to hover between 10 degrees and 25 degrees, three degrees above the season’s average.

According to the weather department, light rain is expected to hit the city on Wednesday and the minimum temperature will rise four notches. Cold winds and rainfall is expected on Thursday, January 26, which could disrupt Republic Day celebrations in the capital.
