While no flight operations were affected, 10 Delhi-bound trains were reported to be running late due to fog while 71 trains were cancelled.

Owing to the fog, 71 trains have been cancelled while ten Delhi-bound trains including Rajdhanis coming from Howrah, Sealdah, Bhubaneswar are running late. Purushottam Express and Howrah Duronto Express are running behind the schedule due to the bad weather.
