Delhi wakes up to thick smog as pollution level breaches ‘hazardous’ category

Thick layers of smog blankets can be seen across Delhi-NCR. The System of Air Quality Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) Saturday had predicted deterioration of air quality in the city from Monday.

Warning that the high level of moisture in Delhi’s atmosphere and a fall in temperature and upper winds from stubble burning sites will “adversely impact air quality,” the report said “AQI will touch the upper level of very poor from November 5 afternoon onwards” as per the SAFAR-forecasting model.
