In the early hours of the 8th of February, meteorological observations in Delhi reveal distinctive temperature trends. The recorded temperatures at 05;30 am, provide a snapshot of the city’s climate dynamics.

Delhi NCR – Persistent fog in Coastal Andra Pradesh:

As of 0530 hrs IST on 08th February 2024, Coastal Andra Pradesh grapples with ongoing foggy conditions, particularly in isolated pockets, with reports indicating very dense fog. This meteorological phenomenon raises concerns about reduced visibility, impacting local activities and travel.

Visibility measurements highlight severity:

Visibility measurements at the same time underscore the severity of the fog in Coastal Andra Pradesh. In Kondaveedu, visibility is recorded at a mere 25 meters, emphasizing the challenging conditions. Vijayawada/Gannavaram, while slightly better, reports visibility at only 200 meters. These measurements signal potential disruptions and safety hazards for residents and commuters.

Delhi NCR – Influence of strong surface winds:

The preceding day, on the 7th of February, the region experienced strong surface winds reaching up to 35 kmph over the North Indian Plains. The repercussions of these winds are evident in visibility reports across various stations. Most locations note visibility ranging between 1000-2000 meters, indicating a notable impact on atmospheric clarity.

Varied visibility readings:

Interestingly, some stations go beyond the 2000-meter mark, highlighting the unpredictable nature of the wind’s influence on visibility. This variability poses challenges for individuals and authorities relying on consistent visibility for day-to-day operations.
