Night temperature in Delhi went up to 14.4 degree Celsius, the highest this winter, but morning fog blanketed the capital, reducing visibility to 600 metres, the weather office said on Wednesday.

The minimum temperature registered in Delhi was seven degrees above normal, it said.

However, inclement weather in other parts of north India delayed departure of flights from the Delhi airport.

A Jet Airways flight to Lucknow took off at 8.55 am hrs from here, 25 minutes behind schedule, due to bad weather at the UP capital, an airline official said.

Inclement weather in Leh also delayed an Indian Airlines Delhi-Leh flight, scheduled for departure at 6.45 am, by 4.15 am, an IA official said.

There were no reports of delays in train departures from Delhi because of weather.
