The Union Ministry of Earth Sciences said on Wednesday that the air quality in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi is likely to remain in the 'moderate' category for the next three days from June 2 to June 4.

According to the National Weather Forecasting Centre of the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the predominant pollutant will be PM10. The strong surface winds are favourable for raising dust locally and for transporting of dust from nearby region.

The air quality is likely to drop to the 'poor' category from June 7.

On Thursday, the predominant surface wind is likely to come from the southwest/west with a wind speed 10-20 kmph, with the possibility of partly cloudy sky and very light rain/thundershower.

The strong surface winds are favourable for raising dust locally and transport of dust from nearby region, thereby making PM10 predominant pollutant.
