After observing the cleanest air of the month yesterday, the air quality of Delhi hasn't been very good today. The overall AQI continues to remain satisfactory in most parts of the city today. As of 8:30 am, the overall PM 2.5 level for the city remains at 83 which falls in ‘moderate’ category. According to meteorologists, the air quality in Delhi is going to remain the same for the next few days as strong surface winds are forecast in the region. Sky will remain mainly clear.
Though the residents woke up to a rather foggy morning today. The first dense fog of the season was recorded in Palam today with close to nil visibility. As cancellation and diversion of flights are possible, it's advisable to check before leaving for respective destinations.
Meanwhile, temperatures have taken a dip and Winter chill is being felt in Delhi and NCR. Yesterday, Delhi recorded a minimum temperature of 12.5°C.
Improvement in air quality was forecast by Skymet earlier as Northwest Plains geared for rains a few days before. These rains not just washed away the persisting pollutants but also led to a reduction in stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana. Also, cold northerly winds are blowing over the region with moderate intensity. Cleaner air from this area is blowing towards Delhi and NCR which has further improved the pollution levels in Delhi.
