Delhiites woke up to a moderately foggy morning with maximum temperature at 23 degree Celsius and minimum temperature at 7 degree Celsius. 



The fog continued to delay trains in the national capital.

Forty-two trains were delayed, four trains rescheduled and 13 trains cancelled due to decreased visibility and operational reasons.

Meanwhile, operations at the Chennai Airport were also briefly suspended from 3.30 am till about 9:30 am on Saturday in view of smoke due to the burning of old articles on the Bogi festival. Earlier in the morning, 12 arriving flights were diverted and nearly 30 departing flights delayed because of the smoke.



Airport officials will review the situation shortly, ANI reported.
