No relief from the cold wave as skies stay dry and clear

There was no relief from the bitter cold in North India on Monday with the mercury sliding further under mainly dry conditions as skies stayed clear following the brief spell of rain and snowfall this past week. Although it was a sunny morning in the national Capital on Monday, temperatures in Delhi did register a wee bit slide with the maximum and minimum both dropping a degree below normal at 19.9 and 6.2 degrees Celsius respectively. There was also light fog in the city in the morning.
