The air quality is likely to be in the 'bad' to 'very bad' category on Wednesday and may worsen even further in the coming two days in the Delhi and NCR region, according to Skymet Weather.

According to weather experts from Skymet, the reason behind this is a western disturbance on the western side of the Himalayas which is going to impact the flow of air in Delhi-NCR regions.

The reduced flow of air is likely to lead to an increase in the accumulation of pollutants in the region and on November 21 and 22 when the situation could worsen even further.

Apart from Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad too are going to be impacted by the worsening air quality.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) in Delhi had improved since Saturday when it was marked at 357.
