The winter months of December and January are the peak foggy months for Delhi and NCR. Thereafter, both the intensity and frequency of fog sharply declines during the month of February.

This season, dense to very dense fog days remained far and few over the national capital region and its adjoining boundaries such as over Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, and Faridabad. In fact, dense to very dense fog that was witnessed, was mostly in pockets only. There were only one or two occasions when Delhi was under widespread dense fog layer.

Moreover, the last week was a fog-free week for Delhi and NCR. The last thick blanket of fog that the city and its surrounding areas were blanketed under was on January 29, which was again in pockets, as recorded by the Palam Observatory.


In fact, February has been a pleasant month for Delhi and NCR so far. Fog has remained absent from occurring over the national capital region and its adjoining areas until now. Though the city witnessed hazy morning, the visibility has remained good and above 1000 meters.
