Delhi pollution to get worse tomorrow, improvement Feb 14 onwards

February 12, 2019 9:12 AM |

In wake of Delhi rains and hailstorm activity, the Air Quality Index (AQI) over Delhi-NCR was under ‘moderate to satisfactory’ category since the last few days.

However, during the last 24 hours, as winds have once again become very light and have accumulated local pollutants, significant change in the atmosphere over Delhi and its nearby areas of Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad has been observed.

In fact, on Tuesday morning, the AQI index over most parts of the city is under poor to very poor category along with few places under severe category.

Talking about Air Quality Index, AQI over Delhi University has been recorded at 359, falling under ‘very poor’ category, followed by Chandni Chowk at 320, IGI Airport at 328, Mathura road at 325 and Pitampura at 337.

Now further also in wake of light winds we expect pollution levels over Delhi NCR region to increase and by tomorrow AQI index of most parts of the city will be under very poor to severe category.

However, February 14 onwards, in wake of the Western Disturbance and its induced cyclonic circulation, rains are likely to commence over parts of Northwest India including the capital city Delhi.

Therefore, during this period, Delhi’s pollution will get washed away by the rains. And with significant improvement, the AQI index over most places will come under ‘moderate to satisfactory’ category.
