Meanwhile, hazy, cloudy skies were reported over Mumbai, Pune, north Maharashtra and adjoining districts in Gujarat on Sunday after a dust storm originating in the Gulf area and Karachi, Pakistan, towards Rajasthan and neighbouring Gujarat, coupled with warmer temperatures in areas along the Arabian sea including Mumbai has led to sand particles entering and polluting the air.

Visibility in several places in and around Mumbai too was low on Sunday morning.
