Delhi Air Quality Is Still ‘Severe’; Dense Fog Envelopes The City

11 January, New Delhi (IANS): On Wednesday, Delhi’s air quality was still considered “severe,” and a thick fog blanketing the capital city made vision nearly impossible.

According to SAFAR, a system for forecasting air quality and weather, the city’s total Air Quality Index (AQI), which was 421 early on Wednesday morning, decreased after a few hours.

The thick fog cover reduced the city’s vision to only 50 meters.

According to the India Metrological Department (IMD), a layer of dense to highly dense fog stretched from Punjab to Bihar to Haryana, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh.

The Indira Gandhi International Airport’s nearby Palam observatory recorded a 50-meter visibility level.

Delhi Air Quality Is Still ‘Severe’; Dense Fog Envelopes The City

Over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar during the night and early morning hours, it said, isolated pockets of dense fog are expected.

“(Recorded at 08:30 IST today) Visibility: Punjab: Bhatinda 0; Amritsar 25; Ludhiana 200; West Rajasthan: Ganganagar 25; Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi: Hissar, Ambala, and Bhiwani each have 25; Palam 50; Karnal, Safdarjung, and Ayanagar (Delhi) 200; “the IMD stated.

According to the IMD, the Safdarjung observatory, which serves as Delhi’s central meteorological station, reported a minimum temperature of 5.8 degrees Celsius.

Minimum temperatures are predicted to climb by 2-4 degrees over the plains of Northwest India due to the present fresh Western Disturbance.

As a result, there won’t likely be any cold wave conditions in the area for at least the next three days, according to the IMD on Wednesday.
