No relief in sight from Delhi’s ongoing winter chill and smog

12:50 PM


Today morning the national capital city, Delhi experienced the lowest minimum temperature at 3.7°C. During this season, dry weather conditions are continuously prevailing since many days. This kind of weather can be traced back to the weak Western Disturbances showing up over Western Himalayas, which are unable to bring any strong weather activity over the northwestern plains including the region of Delhi-NCR.

Northwesterly light winds are continuing over Delhi and NCR region. These winds are cold and dry in nature, and thus the weather is mainly dry.

Due to the absence of any approaching active Western Disturbance in sight, temperatures will continue to decrease in the coming days as well. It will not be much of a surprise to see minimum temperatures settling down between 2-3°C, while the day temperatures are likely to remain somewhere around 20°C.

The coming days are signaling towards clear sky conditions. Although, early morning hours will see moderate fog. This fog will further continue to become denser due to low temperatures. And since its Delhi; fog will take form of smog/haze during the forenoon and afternoon hours. This will pose as a pollution hazard. Hence, air quality is sure to deteriorate in the days to come.
