Rain and snowfall forecast in Jammu and Kashmir will help reduce the smog and pollution levels in Delhi and its adjoining areas, the state’s weatherman reckons.
Sonam Lotus, director of the Met Department told news agency IANS: “The balancing of weather system in the coming days in Jammu and Kashmir will definitely help in decreasing the pollution levels in Delhi and adjoining areas as the system is moving Westwards from the state.
“The smog and pollutant levels will drop in Delhi because of the wind speed generated by the gathering weather system in the state.
“We are expecting light to moderate rain in the plains and snowfall in the higher reaches beginning today (Tuesday) afternoon.
“This will break the long dry spell that continued in the state for nearly three months”.
