Patna: Flight operations at Jayaprakash Narayan International (JPNI) Airport were affected as skies remained covered with clouds on Sunday as well. Around 12 flights were delayed due to poor visibility.
According to a weather scientist at Patna Meteorological Centre, the minimum 1,000m visibility was achieved at 5.30am. However, it slipped to 900m afterwards. “After 7.30am, the visibility again reached to 1,000m and gradually improved,” the weather scientist said.

Meanwhile, scattered light rain and thunderstorm activities were witnessed at isolated places in the state. According to weathermen, Patna would witness colder nights over the next few days. The day temperature, however, is likely to increase in the city.

In its bulletin issued on Sunday, Skymet Weather stated that minimum temperatures would start dropping by around 2-3 degrees Celsius while the maximums would increase by some degrees over the next 24 to 48 hours. “There are chances of moderate to dense fog in many parts of the state in the next 24 hours,” it said.

The weather conditions in the state would again become dry due to formation of cyclonic circulation in Gangetic West Bengal.

According to the Skymet Weather bulletin, another spell of rain and thundershower is expected in eastern parts of the country on January 8 and 9.
