18 flights cancelled at Delhi airport as North India sees poor weather

New Delhi: Eighteen flights departing from the Delhi airport were cancelled on Monday due to inclement weather at other destinations, a senior airport official said.

"Data regarding delays in departures from Delhi airport is being collated," the Delhi airport official said.

"Eighteen departures from Delhi airport were cancelled due to bad weather at the destinations," the official added.

There was no let-up in cold weather conditions in northern India on Monday, with fresh snowfall in Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh and rains in plains keeping the minimum temperatures largely below the 10-degree Celsius mark.

Snowfall in Kashmir for a second consecutive day affected normal life and forced the cancellation of all flights to and from the Srinagar airport.

The national capital woke up to a clear sky but witnessed scattered rains in the evening. The maximum temperature in the city dropped by 3.5 degrees Celsius as against that recorded on Sunday, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.

The city recorded a low of 8 degrees Celsius, a notch above normal, and a maximum of 19.9 degrees Celsius, normal for this time of year, it said.
