Delhi Pollution

The national capital Delhi along with its neighbouring states have been witnessing extended winter this season. And the pollution levels have been fluctuating very often. Usually during winters, pollution remains high, with winter rains acting as savior. But this time rains too have not been of great help. As soon as the rains fade away, the local pollutants get accumulated leading to rise in pollution levels.

On the day of Valentine, February 14, Delhi-NCR witnessed scattered rain and thundershower activities. The wet spell was of short duration which did very little in pulling down pollution levels. That is why Delhiites today are witnessing pollution oscillate between moderate to poor. The westerlies blowing in the capital city is light and to an extent responsible for the irregular pollution pattern. According to Skymet Weather, the pollution levels would be going up and settling somewhere between poor to very poor in the coming 24-48 hours.

The good news is that Delhi is going to witness intermittent light rain activity throughout the week. During this period, the pollution would settle in the moderate to poor category. The reason for this change is that the upcoming rainy spell would be scattered in nature with isolated spells at few places. This would only give local respite for the people of Delhi.
