After two days of very dense fog, the weather of Delhi has cleared up. Only shallow fog with a visibility of 800 meters was reported in Palam during early morning hours. Other than that, a large part of Delhi and NCR woke up to a fog-free morning.

The reason can be attributed to the change in wind direction to north/north-westerlies. Moderate winds from north direction have taken over the region since yesterday night, which have not allowed the layer of fog to settle down today morning. Being dry in nature, these winds have also been instrumental in reducing the humidity.

Moreover, the air quality has improved and by today we expect AQI to enter ‘moderate’ category in most parts of the National Capital Territory.

According to our meteorologists, the moderate winds are expected to pick up more pace in next 24 hours owing to which fog is not likely to form in Delhi and adjoining region for at least next two days.

These winds are also likely to drop day temperatures by 1-2 degrees Celcius, leading to cold day conditions in one or two pockets. And in spite of bright sunshine and clear sky, Delhiites would experience winter chill during the daytime as well.

But, weather models are indicating the approach of another Western Disturbance by the night of January 24. Although this system is expected to largely affect the northern hills, some impact would be seen in terms of a change in the wind direction over the northern plains. The north/northwesterly winds will get replaced by humid easterlies yet again.

Thus, January 26 onwards, we expect foggy mornings to return to Delhi and NCR. The intensity is likely to vary between ‘moderate and dense’. Very dense fog in some parts may also lead to poor visibility levels.
