New Delhi: The residents of national capital on Monday woke up to a cold morning as the mercury touched 3.8 degrees Celsius, three notches below the season's average, the Met Office said.

"There was shallow to moderate fog in the morning along with dense fog in some parts of Delhi. The sky will remain clear with no chance of rainfall. Later in the evening, there will be haze and mist," an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official said.

The maximum temperature is expected to hover at around 22 degrees Celsius, the season's average, while the day's minimum will remain around 4 degrees Celsius.

According to IMD, the cold wave condition is likely to continue for the next 2-3 days.
