The maximum temperature in Delhi is expected to hover around 23 degree Celsius.
The city experienced moderate to dense fog at several places. Visibility dropped to 100 metres at the Safdarjung observatory, the department said. The weather department has also brought some good news for the Delhi residents - there is likely to be no cold wave at least till January 8.
However, light rains are expected in the capital anytime between January 6 and 8 due to a fresh western disturbance.

Widespread rains may also help reduce pollution levels.
