The air quality over Delhi-NCR is likely to remain in Moderate to Poor category on 06.04.2021, said National Weather Forecasting Centre of the India Meteorological Department (IMD). The air quality is likely to improve to Moderate category on 07.04.2021 and 08.04.2021. The Outlook for subsequent 5 Days: The air quality is likely to remain largely in Moderate category.

The predominant surface wind is likely to be coming from East directions of Delhi with wind speed 10-12 kmph, partly cloudy sky with possibility of very light rain/drizzle towards night on 06.04.2021. The predominant surface wind is likely to be coming from Northeast/Northwest directions of Delhi with wind speed 14-20 kmph, partly cloudy sky and strong surface winds (speed 20-30 kmph) during the day on 07.04.2021. The predominant surface wind is likely to be coming from North/Northwest directions of Delhi with wind speed 16-20 kmph and mainly clear sky and strong surface winds (speed 20-30 kmph) during the day on 08.04.2021.

Predicted maximum mixing depth is likely to be approx 4500 m on 06.04.2021, 4000 m on 07.04.2021 and 3800 m on 08.04.2021 over Delhi.
