Mumbai Breathes Healthiest Air On Tuesday Afternoon


According to the latest reports, on Tuesday, June 14, afternoon, Mumbai witnessed what was probably its healthiest air. It has been reported that in the System of Air Quality Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), India’s air quality monitoring service by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, suggests that the city’s Air Quality Index (AQI) at 14 was the best ever as of that day. 

Based on accounts, the humidity levels in the evening rose to cause the AQI to surge to 40 which is however still believed to be good and healthy. On the other hand, on Monday, June 13, Mumbai registered an AQI of 28.

Experts believe that the fall in pollution levels caused favourable weather conditions which include the recent rainfall in the city and the strong winds. However, some narratives claim that vehicular congestion, dust and smoke from burning garbage and industry result in high pollution levels in the city. 

In other developments, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the possibility of rains in the city on Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16. The Regional Meteorological Centre, Mumbai, has predicted generally cloudy skies with light to moderate rainfall along with thunderstorms for the city in the next 24 hours.

It predicts that Mumbai and its suburbs could receive light rainfall for the next 24 hours and there is a possibility of occasional intense spells.
