1 min read

            On Friday, Delhi saw a foggy and relatively cold morning in various regions of the city, with an overall temperature of 9.4 degrees Celsius as of 9 a.m. There appears to be some break in rain activity in the Capital, as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has given no predictions for rain till February 17.

While rain is expected across India, including in Delhi’s neighbouring states of Punjab, Haryana, and Western Uttar Pradesh, the Capital is expected to endure severe fog in the morning and night hours for many days.

The city is also expected to see strong gusts over the following two days, with a high temperature of 22-23 degrees Celsius.

According to RK Jenamani, scientist at IMD, while Delhi is anticipated to experience strong westerly winds over the next two days, the maximum temperature is unlikely to exceed average levels.

“The typical temperature for this time of year is 23 degrees, and the highest temperature will be around that level for the next three days”, he stated on Thursday.

Meanwhile, following yesterday’s downpour, Delhi’s air quality improved somewhat to a ‘moderate’ zone on Friday, with an overall AQI (Air Quality Index) of 132. The AQI was measured in the moderate zone across multiple stations in Noida as well. The AQI in Gurugram was also in the moderate range, but in some portions of Faridabad, it was in the poor range.
