With the minimum temperature falling, there will be additional moisture in Delhi’s air, mainly because of a cold wave and ground frost conditions over some parts of northwest India.

“Winds are again becoming partially favourabe for the dispersion. Moist air from IGP-region is continuously passing over Delhi’s cool surface by advection and will lead to moderate advection fog,” says SAFAR.

Delhi must avoid prolonged or heavy exertion, says the research body in an advisory.

“Go for a short walk instead of a jog and take more breaks. Stop any activity level if you experience any unusual coughing, chest discomfort, wheezing, breathing difficulty, or fatigue. If the room has windows, close them,” the advisory reads.

It also advises people to avoid burning wood, candles or incense. “If the air conditioner provides fresh air intake option, keep that closed.  Keep the room clean – don’t vacuum. Do wet mopping to reduce dust,” says the advisory.
