Pollution has been on an increase since the last 48 hours as the winds remained light. Wind speed has remained light in order of 7-10 kmph. These northwesterly/westerly winds have been able to carry the smoke from stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana.

After November 8, there has been gradual increase in farm fires which has further added to the woes of Delhiites. On November 10, stubble burning count was more than 6000. Thus, with stubble burning being at peak, and light winds not being able to blow away the local pollutants from Delhi, Pollution levels will only see an increase further.

On and off Western Disturbances have been affecting the Western Himalayas and will continue doing so through the week, which are further not allowing moderate winds to blow over the plains of Northwest India.

Relief in sight is only expected after November 15, when there will be a gap in the approach of Western Disturbance which will further allow winds at the speed of 15-20 kmph to blow over the region. Thus, it will be then when pollutants will be blown away and residents will heave a sigh of relief. Until then, stay cautious and safe
