There has been a drop in temperature in the Delhi NCR area and due to rain showers in Delhi itself, the pollution level has reduced somewhat and the visibility has also improved. According to IMD, it will rain in Delhi on Saturday and Sunday as well.
The Meteorological Department also explained some reasons for this unseasonal rain. Western disturbance is becoming active in the hilly areas from today (February 3), and its direct effects will be seen in the plains. Due to this, between the 3rd and 5th of February, rain will occur again. The meteorological department has predicted that the amount of fog will increase once again from February 7.
