Air Pollution To Rise With Rising Temperature in India

Air Pollution will rise with rising temperature in India. For the next few days, temperature readings will frequently touch 40 degrees.

MoE, GOI has notified that the air quality in and around the national capital region is going to deteriorate in the coming days as the temperature rises and also due to the up-coming dust storms from western India.

Delhi NCR’s Upcoming AQI Level

Dry and dusty winds are expected from 16th April and hence the air quality index (AQI) is expected to dip to poor to hazardous category.

AQI in Delhi has already begun to rise. An AQI reading of 264 was recorded on 15th April, highest after the lockdown was implemented.

NCR region recorded its hottest day so far on 15th April at 39.8 degrees and the AQI level was mostly recorded in Moderate – Poor category.

IMD has also forecasted the chances of light rain and gusty wind by 19th April. A good shower can further bring down the AQI into good category. With rising temperatures, wildfire season is also approaching. We all saw last year in Australia, how an uncontrolled wildfire can create havoc. All these developments are not good for air quality. So, once the lockdown is lifted, residents of Delhi NCR will be welcoming dusty days.
