Delhi has recorded its cleanest February in nine years, marked by the consistent maintenance of the Air Quality Index below 200 for the majority of days, according to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). The national capital also experienced 32.5 mm of rainfall in February this year, the highest in the month since 2013. 

With an average monthly maximum temperature of 24 degrees Celsius, slightly below the long-term average, February has emerged as the most temperate

month since 2019 according to the India Meteorological Department. Strong surface winds owing to Western Disturbance help settle or disperse pollutants, leading to cleaner air. As of 4 P.M. today, Delhi's AQI stands at 145, hinting towards clearer skies and improved environmental conditions in the coming times. These encouraging developments offer a glimmer of hope to Delhi's residents, alleviating the persistent concerns surrounding air pollution.
