New Delhi: Delhi ranks among the most polluted cities in the world. Pollution levels in Delhi rise alarmingly, especially during Diwali. This time too it is being seen. The delay in the departure of monsoon from North India is going to negatively affect the climate of Delhi-NCR. There is a possibility of a sharp drop in air quality in the second fortnight of this month. By the end of the month, the wind can reach very poor levels. In such a situation, Delhi-NCR is likely to turn into a gas chamber.
The bulk of the pollutants will be from fireworks and smoke from straw burning in neighbouring states. Local pollution will also play an important role in this. The System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) has said in the forecast for the next 15 days on Wednesday that the monsoon starts to depart on September 1 every year. This year it is one month late. It is to be said farewell in the next few days. According to Safar, the delay in the departure of the monsoon is not a good sign for the climate of Delhi-NCR.
After October 15, the temperature will fall and the weather will be cold. At the same time, soon after the return of the monsoon, there will be cyclonic conditions in the region. This will keep the winds moving on the surface of the Earth. Travel says that the combined effect of both will be in the form of bad seasonal conditions. This will increase the level of air pollution rapidly. During this period, due to increase in cases of fireworks and straw burning, the air quality will be very poor. With this, Delhi-NCR will see gas chambers being formed for the first time this season. However, the situation may be better in Delhi if local factors are banned.
