Delhiites today pulled put more woollens from their winter wardrobe as morning temperature plummeted to the season's lowest of 2.7 degree Celsius.

Today's minimum is four degree Celsius below normal and down from yesterday's 4.4 degrees Celsius. Yesterday, the maximum was 12.7 degree Celsius.

Fog in the early morning hours slowed down traffic.

On Tuesday, the minimum had dipped to four degree Celsius, the previous lowest for the season.
