Hindustan Times|January 27, 2022
A day after recording the city's coldest January day in nine years, the maximum temperature rose by 4-5°C in most parts of Delhi on Wednesday even as "cold day" and "severe cold day” conditions prevailed in many areas.

Safdarjung, Delhi's base station, recorded a maximum temperature of 16.4°C on Wednesday-six degrees below the normal mark for this time of the year.

Narela was Delhi's coldest location on Wednesday, with the temperature peaking at 14.7°C.

It was the third consecutive cold day for Delhi, and the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted similar conditions will persist on Thursday as well.

The impact of the cold was not just limited to the daytime temperature, however, with Delhi also recording a minimum of 5.8°C on Wednesday three degrees below the normal mark, and down from 6.2°C a day ago.

While IMD has predicted that the city's maximum temperature will gradually rise to 17-18°C over the next three days, the minimum is expected to hover around 4-5°C, with parts of Delhi still likely to record "cold wave" conditions.
