Clear sky in Delhi but air quality still poor


New Delhi, Nov 14: Delhiites are experiencing a clear morning marked with shallow fog but the air quality is still the same after the Air Quality Index (AQI) was recorded ‘Very Poor’ on Monday.

The minimum temperature was recorded at 14.1 degrees Celsius in the national Capital, three notches below the season’s average.

As per the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the sky will remain clear throughout the day with no chances of rain as there is no cloud formation.

The maximum temperature is expected to reach around 30.7 degrees Celsius.

At 8.30 am, the humidity was 63 per cent and rainfall nil.

However, the increase in wind speed has resulted in the dispersal of prominent pollutants — PM 2.5 and PM 10 — from the air to a significant extent but the Air Quality Index (AQI) was still recorded ‘Very Poor’.

The AQI for most of the places in Delhi ranged between 320-442.
