With a minimum temperature of 5.8 degrees Celsius, Delhi witnessed dense fog on Thursday morning.
With a visibility of 50 to 100 metres, dense fog was observed at various parts of Delhi from 4.30 am onwards, the India Meteorological Department said.
Like Delhi, Mumbai is also experiencing unusually cold weather with 13.2 degrees Celsius due to which the Mumbaikers are preferring to remain inside their homes. Mumbai, incidentally, also witnessed rainfall over the weekend.
The IMD has predicted the temperature to dip further in the coming days in Delhi and Mumbai. The sudden chill was due to a combination of factors, including a cyclonic circulation over northwest India, the IMD said.
While being at home, Mumbaikars and Delhites did not miss the opportunity to roast the internet with fun-loving memes about the weather as they wrapped themselves in winter clothing and sipped their hot beverages.
Among those hit by the cold weather was Shah Rukh Khan’s production house, the Red Chillies Entertainment, who shared several behind-the-scenes images of Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan. Sweaters ki keemat tum kya jaano Delhi walon, the Red Chillies entertainment captioned its Instagram post.
The Delhi and Mumbaikers have sharing the scenes of Game of Thrones including photos of actor Jack Nicholson covered in snow.
Another user shared the image on John snow with a caption John Snow.
