A week of unhealthy air and uneasy weather ahead for Delhi NCR

April 26, 2019 9:41 AM |

Dry weather condition is prevailing in entire NCR region since April 18. Yesterday, the Safdarjung Observatory (Base Observatory for records) in Delhi recorded the highest day temperature of the season at 42.1°C. However,  some light dust storm activities did occur in parts of Delhi-NCR during the later part of the day yesterday. This was due to a trough which was extending from the induced Cyclonic Circulation over North Rajasthan to West Uttar Pradesh across Delhi. Now, as this weather system has dissipated, we expect dry weather conditions to continue over Delhi and its adjoining areas for the next four to five days.

No relief is in sight for the people of Delhi as maximum temperature is likely to settle close to 40°C in most parts of the city. Sky will remain almost clear with bright sunshine. Heat wave conditions will also be experienced in Delhi-NCR over the next few days.

The pollution levels have also increased in Delhi due to mild dust-storm activities which occurred over parts of Rajasthan due to southwesterly winds blowing over the region. The pollution levels are likely to remain high (particularly the PM 10) as the dust particles have increased.
