Mumbai sees this often in Winters...No Panic
But with some rain expected on Monday, Mumbai will get some cleaner air
Temperature inversion and lack of strong breeze from surface till 700 hPa (around 3 km) results in hazy conditions...which is being observed across different places in the country. It is usually a combination of particulate matter and moisture in the air.
In cities, the urban pollutants also get trapped, resulting in yellowish/brownish haze.
It's not just Mumbai...
