National capital Delhi recorded coldest morning of the season on Monday with mercury at 10.8 degree celsius. According to the officials of Indian Metrological Department, the Safdarjung Observatory that provides authentic data for the city records a minimum of 14 to 16 degrees Celsius in the first week of November and 14 to 16 degrees Celsius in the last week of the months.
According to the India Meteorological Department, Delhi recorded a minimum temperature of 10.8 degrees Celsius on Monday,which is the lowest this season so far. Kuldeep Srivastava, head of the regional forecasting centre of Indian Metrological Department, said Delhi has been witnessing a trend of low minimum temperatures due to the absence of cloud cover. Clouds trap some of the outgoing infrared radiation and radiate it back downward, warming the ground. There hasn't been much snowfall in the hills, so cold winds from that region are yet to start affecting Delhi's weather, he said.
On Sunday, the city recorded a minimum temperature of 11.4 degrees Celsius. The month of October was the coolest in 58 years in the national capital.
