On and off rains have not allowed pollution to increase over Delhi and its adjoining areas such as Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad since the last few days. In fact, in the last 24 hours, the pollution levels have significantly improved with AQI coming under ‘moderate’ category over most of the places.
According to Skymet weather, Delhi pollution will sustain this level for next 24 hours. However, it will not upgrade to ‘satisfactory’ level because rains have taken a backseat now, as a result of the significant weather system moving away. However, the remnants of this system will continue scattered showers in parts of Punjab and Haryana for another 24 hours.
With rains taking a backseat, the wind pattern has also undergone a change. As a result, moderate southeasterly winds with a speed of 15 to 20 kmph are blowing over the region. These winds will not allow pollution to increase for at least next 24 hours.
Thereafter, a marginal increase is possible, but in any case this will not drop down to ‘severe’ category and will continue oscillating between ‘poor and moderate’ category, with only one or two places coming under ‘very poor’ category.
