The 'agreeable' air after Sunday's downpour is, in such manner, a brief reprieve for Delhiites. 

Arrangement of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), the Union studies of the planet service's guaging body, predicts more stubble fires in the coming days. Gufran Beig, originator and undertaking chief, SAFAR, said, "Because of downpour and overcast cover, satellites haven't had the option to catch with exactness the frequency of ranch fires. For example, only 127 ranch fires were seen as of now when the fire emanation extent in Delhi's PM2.5 was 6%." 

In its notice on Monday, SAFAR conjecture, "More fire outflow is probable because of dry conditions throughout the following three days in the upwind, northwest district. Because of this, PM2.5 will increment. The successful fire includes saw as of now are only 127 and their commitment in Delhi's PM2.5 is 6%. In any case, as satellites profoundly disparage the counts during shady and stormy periods, genuine counts may be a lot higher."

The downpour on Sunday likewise cut down the particulate levels to underneath the allowable furthest reaches of 60 microgramme per cubic meter. For the following two days, anticipated northwesterly breezes might uphold the development of smoke from the adjoining states to Delhi-NCR."
