Delhi’s weather conditions have now begun to improvise. Since yesterday, a drastic change in the pollution levels has been observed. The smoggy weather that restricted almost all the outdoor activities for Delhiites has now started to improve and chances of further improvement are on the card for the national capital.

Delhi smog, a major health hazard was on a rise from more than a week over Delhi and NCR. The air quality kept on failing and the visibility dropped from bad to worse. The reason for the deteriorating air quality as decoded by the weatherman at Skymet Weather was the prevalence of calm and light dry winds.

As per Skymet Weather, from last many days, the winds were calm or very light in nature and being from the north-west direction carried the pollutants from the stubble burning practices from the adjoining states of Punjab and Haryana.

Due to their light nature, these winds were unable to lift the pollutants and thus the thick layer of smog persisted in Delhi’s atmosphere. But since yesterday morning, the wind pattern and its speed changed, and the northwesterly winds were swapped by the southeasterly winds. These winds were blowing at a speed of 8-10 kmph.

The increased speed of these winds helped in fading away the pollution levels which is at present the case now. Delhi’s air quality has started to improve now, and it is expected that the wind speed will further pace up in the order of 10-15 kmph.

Additionally, light rains are expected today in parts of Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan which may further increase by tomorrow. Delhi may also get isolated light spells by tomorrow which will further lead to enhanced and improved weather conditions over Delhi and NCR.
