Mumbai:

The East winds shifted to North West direction. Resulting in

*On 16th/17th of this month, a short spell of pleasant temperatures ( 16/17°). 

* An improvement in the bustling City's air quality. The Air Quality Index fell from " Poor" ( 175) to "Good" ( 80).

Now, as the NW winds are going to relent, we may see the Air Quality Index rising again ( 140).

*North India*

A strong Jet Stream across the North Indian plains, with winds at 150 knots,  has caused an High Pressure Region ( due to convergence).



This has resulted in

* Thick fog in the plains 

* Sharp drop in day and night temperatures. Almost sub zero temperatures. 

*The places in the plains of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi are colder than the Himalayan hill stations at night.
