New Delhi:

After a dense blanket of smog enveloped the Delhi-NCR region for the past few days, the people may get some respite from it as light rains are expected on November 14 and 15, the MeT officials said.

The minimum temperature in Delhi on Sunday was recorded at 13 degree Celsius, which is one degree below this season’s average temperature.

Humidity levels in the national capital oscillated between 98 per cent and 51 per cent.

Moderate fog will prevail in Delhi on Monday morning and mostly clear sky during the day, according to the MeT department.

The national capital has been experiencing dense smog for the past a few days, forcing authorities to enforce emergency measures such as banning construction activities and brick kilns due to worsening air pollution.

The “odd-even” rationing of cars, which was scheduled to begin on Monday, was however deferred by the Delhi government after the National Green Tribunal ordered the withdrawal of exemptions given to women and two-wheelers under the scheme.
