The people of Delhi are facing the stifling wind after about eight months. From February onwards, air quality was generally good at first due to western disturbances coming at regular intervals, then lockdown and later monsoon. Even if the quality deteriorated slightly in between, it remained for a day or two and reached the poor category only. However, now the air quality index has started reaching very poor category.
Delhi’s wind is now entering its worst phase. With the onset of winter, the wind starts from the northwest or west direction. The wind speed slows down, causing pollution to stay in the air for a long time. Due to the long rains, the soil becomes brittle and flies high in the air. The air of Delhi is now beginning to cool down at night. Due to this, the air quality index reached the 303 mark in the morning.
The improvement was still expected
due to the low air pressure area in the Bay of Bengal. It was expected that there would be a change in wind direction in Delhi and people would get some relief from pollution. However, its impact on Delhi has not been seen. According to Safar, air quality has improved in Mumbai and Pune due to its impact, but Delhi has not generally been affected. Safar estimates that the air quality is not expected to improve significantly in the next two days.
