外文标题：Delhi colder than London, Shimla
NEW DELHI: On a fogged out Monday, when the minimum temperature plunged to a season’s low of 4.2 degrees Celsius, Delhi was colder than hill stations such as Mussoorie and Shimla. It was chillier than even the British capital, London, where the day’s low was predicted to be 10 degrees C.
While the maximum temperature in the capital remained at an uncomfortably low 15.8 degrees C, Mussoorie was decidedly milder at a temperature range of 9 to 16 degrees C. Shimla too had a higher minimum (6.2) than Delhi, though the maximum temperature there was a notch lower at 14 degrees C.
The cold spell in the capital, now into its ninth day, appears to be only getting worse. Monday opened with the season’s severest spell of fog that lasted till around noon, making conditions harsh for schoolchildren and office-goers. For the fourth consecutive day, the Met department declared ‘cold day’ conditions in Delhi — meaning the day’s highest temperature was more than 5 degrees below normal.

There has to be some geographic reason for this change. Not sure what it is ?

We are also not fully equipped to beat the cold. Many houses are ill designed and not well insulated to protect from cold unlike western countries.
