Jamshedpur, Feb 21: Jamshedpur was reduced to around 1,000 metres while places like Mango, Ghatshila and Chandil located on the foothills of Dalma saw surface visibility going below 500 metres due to foggy weather.

Weathermen said the foggy condition, along with the mist, was due to the impact of a western disturbance and an associated cyclonic circulation and a trough  hovering 1.5 Km.
