At the same time, along with the cold in Delhi-NCR, air pollution is also increasing after Diwali. Delhi’s air quality improved on Wednesday morning due to favorable winds in the capital region, but it is still polluted. According to the Meteorological Department, the air quality index (AQI) was recorded at 262 in the national capital at 6 am on Wednesday, which is better than the AQI (303) recorded at 4 pm on Tuesday. Delhi’s AQI was 312 at 4 pm on Monday i.e. Diwali. Apart from this, snowfall is being seen in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Southwest Monsoon usually lasts till 30th September but this time it rained even after 30th September. This was due to the active cyclonic circulation over Madhya Pradesh and South Gujarat and its association with the mid-latitude weather systems, which brought rain in October over North-West and Central India. According to IMD data, post-monsoon rainfall between October 1 and 23 was 104 mm, which was 65 per cent more than the season’s normal rainfall of 63.2 mm.
