The commencement of rains in Delhi and its adjoining areas has lead to a marginal improvement in pollution levels over the entire region,which now stands at a moderate category. However, there are some places where the level of pollution still remains between‘poor to very poor’.
In the last 24 hours, wind speed has increased with drizzle being observed at several places. And according to meteorologists at Skymet, more rains with increased intensity are expected as the day progresses, which is likely to pull down pollution levels even further.
These rains will be an outcome of the Western Disturbance over northern hills and its induced cyclonic circulation over parts of Northwest India. The weather condition is likely to prevail for a couple of days more.
According to a survey of World Health Organisation, air quality in Delhi is the worst among major cities in the world, and for some time now, it has been increasing at an alarming rate. However, this spell of rain could prove fruitful in bringing some significant improvement.
