According to the India Meteorological Department, Delhi will have a cold day on Tuesday, with a minimum temperature of 7 degrees Celsius and a maximum temperature of 16 degrees Celsius (IMD).
For the next two days, “cold day” temperatures are expected in Delhi, with a yellow signal in effect for Tuesday and Wednesday.
A “cold day,” according to the IMD, is defined as a high temperature that is more than 4.5 degrees Celsius below normal, with a minimum temperature that is also below the 10-degree line. A “yellow notice” is usually issued to warn people about a specific weather event that could have a significant impact on them.
According to the IMD’s weekly weather forecast, the temperature is likely to stay in the same range on Tuesday and Wednesday, with a decrease in the lowest temperature beginning on Thursday. According to IMD authorities, the cold isn’t expected to persist long because wind speeds are expected to increase in the following days.
According to the Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi’s air quality was in the “poor” category on Tuesday morning, with the hourly air quality index (AQI) at 7 a.m. registering 255. The average 24-hour AQI on Monday was 241, which was likewise in the “bad” category.
An AQI of zero to 50 is considered “excellent,” 51-100 “acceptable,” 101-200 “moderate,” 201-300 “poor,” 301-400 “extremely poor,” and above 401 “severe,” according to the CPCB.
The System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (Safar) of the Union Ministry of Earth Science announced on Monday that the air quality has decreased marginally owing to the combined influence of a dust storm and a western disturbance.
