Delhi: AQI ‘very poor’, not much hope soon | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: Delhi’s overall Air Quality Index (AQI) was 336 on Saturday as against 294 on Friday. Experts said calm wind conditions on Friday night led to the accumulation of pollutants and a haze appeared over the sky in the morning.
According to the Air Quality Early Warning System for Delhi, the air quality is likely to remain in the upper end of the ‘poor’ category on Sunday and deteriorate to the ‘very poor’ category on Monday and Tuesday. The air quality is likely to remain largely in the ‘very poor’ category for the subsequent six days.

The System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), the forecasting body under the Union ministry of earth sciences, said, the share of stubble burning in Delhi’s PM2.5 was 2%. The Indian Agricultural Research Institute said that satellites detected 22 farm fires in Punjab, 12 in Haryana, and 127 in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the minimum temperature was recorded at 8.3 degrees Celsius, three notches below normal, at Safdarjung, which is the city’s base station. The maximum temperature settled at 27 degrees Celsius, one degree above normal. However, the night temperature is likely to dip further to 7 degrees Celsius on Monday.
“North-westerly winds, which bring cold air from snow-capped mountains, continue to blow in the city. Clear skies make the day warm while the heat quickly dissipates at night, which causes a fall in minimum temperature,” said a met official. According to IMD, the maximum and minimum temperatures are likely to be 27 and 8 degrees Celsius, respectively, on Sunday.
