Cold conditions prevail in north India, heavy rainfall likely in southern states from Dec 1

With winds slowing down, government agencies said the air quality is likely to deteriorate further. The city’s 24-hour average air quality index (AQI) was 231 on Saturday. Stronger winds and a drastic reduction in the contribution of stubble burning were two major reasons for cleaner skies over Delhi on Friday. However, the winds slowed down at night allowing the pollutants to accumulate.
Winds are predicted to slow down on Sunday and therefore, Delhi’s air quality is likely to deteriorate further and remain in the ‘poor’ to ‘very poor’ category over the next two days.(ANI Photo)
