Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan to breathe fresh air, respite from pollution

November 17, 2019 10:48 AM |

During the last couple of days, the sky conditions have been cloudy and mostly overcast resulting in severe pollution and some very light rains at scattered places over the northwestern states of Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana as well as Chandigarh.

This weather was continuing due to presence of a cold upper air Trough associated with a Western Disturbance.

Presently, the above system has moved away East-northeastwards. In the wake of these systems, strong winds are prevailing over Northwest Plains.

These winds have been crucial in pushing away the smoke layer towards Eastern parts of the country. Hence, the sky conditions have become clear with bright sunshine over most areas. Also, pollution levels have come down over most parts.

These gusty winds will prevail during the next 48 hours, due to which further improvement in pollution levels can be expected. Night temperatures will decrease gradually by 1 to 3-degree Celsius while day temperatures will rise marginally. This dry weather along with very cool nights and comfortable days with bright sunshine, is likely to continue during the next three to four days.

During the early morning hours, mist and haze will keep reducing the visibility levels. The northern parts of Punjab and western parts of Rajasthan are likely to observe shallow fog in pockets.
