Texans Expected To Retain Bill O'Brien
We all wish Smith and his wife strength and positive vibes as they deal with her cancer and hope it all ends positively. It is unclear at this point whether O'Brien will have a greater say in personnel decisions in Smith's absence.

The maximum temperature is likely to hover around 22 degrees Celsius, he said. "Day temperature will fall significantly", Mahesh Palawat, Vice President at Skymet Weather, said, adding the minimum temperature of 5.7 degrees was "lowest minimum of the season".

As per procedure, take-offs can take place only if the runway visibility is above 125 metres. All flights to and from the national capital are on standby and no operations are active as of now due to low visibility, news agency ANI reported. The visibility later improved to 100 metres at 3 a.m. and to 200 metres at 6 a.m. Flights can land in visibility below 50 metres if pilots are trained in CAT IIIB - which is Category Three.

Tuesday began on a very cold note for Delhi-NCR people with a dense fog covering the sky in the entire region.

The Ministry of Railways on November 29 announced a detailed plan for cancellation and frequency reduction of trains traversing through fog affected areas in order to manage the train operations.
