Rains in Delhi bring slight relief in Pollution

Delhiites have been witnessing severe to hazardous pollution levels since November 8. According to Skymet Weather, rains were expected on November 13 and 14 and the forecast came true.

The intensity of rain was light at most parts, and the spread was patchy. However, some pockets of Delhi-NCR received intense showers as well. Due to this, pollution has faded away from Delhi to a great extent. But as per the experts, this relief will be short lived because winds are still light in nature. Light winds would continue to blow till tomorrow, therefore leading to an increase in pollution levels.

Most of the pollutants have washed away and settled around ground thus we immediately don’t expect a spike in pollution levels. They may fall in 'very poor’ category. There are still chances of isolated pockets to experience ‘severe’ pollution.

Good news for the inhabitants is that the ongoing Western Disturbance is moving away eastwards and by November 16, northwesterly dry winds will slip into the northern plains including capital territory Delhi-NCR.

Wind speed is expected to increase and might reach 10-15km/hr. And, for a short duration it is expected to touch the mark of 15-20km/hr as well. Between November 16-18, people will witness a relief and easy breathing patterns will make a comeback. Icy cold winds will drop the minimums in Delhi by 4-5 degree-Celsius. Maximums are expected to fall marginally.
