Overnight Rain, Gusty Winds Help Reduce Delhi-NCR
Even as firecrackers were burst post-Diwali despite the ban in Delhi, rains and wind on Sunday brought some relief from choking air pollution.

The Air Quality Index hit 999 on the night of Diwali but due to the rain the next day, Delhi-NCR recorded the lowest pollution in the last four days on Monday morning. In most areas of Delhi, the air quality index was over 350, less than the usual 400.

But despite the rains, AQI at 500 was recorded in ITO area in Delhi on Monday morning while it remained low in other places. Along with pollution, a drop in temperature was also recorded in many North Indian states including Delhi, due to which the cold has also increased.

Amid changing weather pattern, India Meteorological Department scientist, RK Jenamani, has said that “the temperature will start falling in Delhi from Monday onwards, due to the impact of western disturbances”.

RK Jenamani has said that in the coming days, the temperature may fall below 3-4 degrees Celsius. According to the IMD, the western disturbance mainly affects the plains of Punjab, Delhi, western Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. He said that the temperature will not fall to December levels but a decrease of 3-4 degrees will be recorded.

According to the IMD, Delhi's weather fluctuations will continue till November 21 and due to rain, fog may occur in some areas in the morning and evening.
