Fog alert ex­tended by one more day

Deccan Chronicle - - City -

Hyderabad: The fog alert given by the In­dian Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Depart­ment has been ex­tended by an­other day, as the fog and mist-like con­di­tions are likely to pre­vail over Te­lan­gana state and Andhra Pradesh on Jan­uary 14 as well. Ear­lier, the warn­ing was lim­ited till only Jan­uary 13. As there has been no re­duc­tion in the fog in the at­mos­phere, the alert was sent out. A fog alert is de­clared when the hor­i­zon­tal vis­i­bil­ity be­comes less than 1 km and ex­perts ad­vise peo­ple not to use ve­hi­cles dur­ing the night as the vis­i­bil­ity would be poor. The for­ma­tion of fog is due to the change in the di­rec­tion of winds. Ear­lier, the state was re­ceiv­ing North East­ern winds which were cooler. But now, the state is re­ceiv­ing winds from the South West, which is mak­ing the tem­per­a­tures com­par­a­tively warmer.
