Delhi to breathe cleaner air this week, winter coming soon

Delhi to breathe cleaner air this week, winter coming soon

Dense smog conditions have wreaked havoc over the national capital for quite some time now. So much so that a state of health emergency had been declared over the city. Schools remained closed and residents were advised to stay in for as long as they can.

However, smoggy conditions which were prevailing over Delhi and the NCR region have reduced to quite an extent. The change in these conditions have occurred due to the increased wind speed. Presently, humid southeasterly winds are blowing over Dehi-NCR. The speed of these winds is between 10-15 kmph during the afternoon hours.

Thus, intensity of smog has reduced. Moreover, winds are blowing towards Haryana and Punjab where stubble burning is still going on but even this has reduced to quite an extent. Currently, winds are blowing in the opposite direction, thus smoke is not reaching Delhi and the NCR region which has further helped in reducing the pollution levels.

After 24 hours, the cyclonic circulation which is over Northwest Rajasthan will move away which is why cold winds from the northern direction will begin blowing over Delhi and the NCR region. These winds will reduce the humidity levels.

Not only this, temperatures will also witness a drop over the region. We expect wind speed to remain around 10-15 kmph. Therefore, pollution levels will remain on the lower side for at least next 3 to 4 days.

Minimums will drop by 2-3 degrees during the next 48 hours resulting in cold nights and early mornings. Thus, the much-awaited wintry feel will make an appearance with the air being slightly cleaner leaving the choking feeling far away for now.
