ALLAHABAD: Dense fog and low temperatures forced locals of Sangam city to stay indoors for a greater part of the day on Monday. Meanwhile, the sun played hide and seek, leaving locals longing for some warmth.
The maximum temperature for the day was recorded to be 23.2 degree Celsius while the minimum was 12.9 degree. Because of the high humidity, slow winds also caused the temperature to nosedive.
The minimum visibility was nil while the maximum was at 2 km. Although movement of trains and flights was affected by the foggy weather, things
improved by noon. Some of the important trains, like the New Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express, were running late by more than 10 hours. Railway authorities have asked the passengers to keep an eye on the movement of the trains before starting from their homes.
Meanwhile, Met experts said foggy conditions and low temperatures would continue for the next 10 days, as the northern plains witness a cold wave.
"These are dangerous signs similar to the weather conditions in winters of 2002 and 2003, when people had a tough time coping up with the cold," said Prof Savinder Singh, renowned Geographer and former head of the department of geography, Allahabad University.
Climatologist at AU, Prof S S Ojha said the temperatures in the northern region, since last fortnight were on the higher side, as the cold air descended from the mountains and as the atmosphere in the plains was already loaded with humidity.
