Mumbai in haze due to weather change

Mumbaikars have been waking up to hazy mornings for a couple of days now, and the condition on Monday seemed worse as the haze continued to envelop the city throughout the day.

As per IMD officials the haze was a result of the transition of weather, the effect of moisture on the hot easterly winds coming from the northern part of the country as well as pollution. “The high levels of Particulate Matter (PM) pollutants suspended in the air and a combination of the heat has been resulting in hazy conditions,” said the IMD official.
