As fog over most parts of Northwest India including the national capital, Delhi has disappeared completely, we still haven’t seen much improvement in the pollution levels over Delhi and its nearby regions of Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.

In fact, today most parts Delhi NCR region are observing poor to very poor air quality levels. However, only few pockets are experiencing moderate air category such as Lodhi Road, Ayanagar, Mathura Road and Delhi Airport.

Now in wake of the Western Disturbance over northern hills and its induced cyclonic circulation over parts of Northwest India, rains are likely to commence over the region and we expect the air quality index to improve marginally by tomorrow.

Moreover, due to the above weather systems, most parts of Northwest India including the national capital Delhi will observe fairly widespread rain and thundershower activities on February 7. Therefore, pollutants in the air will get washed away and pollution levels will decrease significantly.

Thus, relief is in sight for the residents of Delhi at least for the coming three to four days, Delhi’s pollution will remain under moderate category over most parts.
