Precautions for the rising air pollution
Ahmedabad is grappling with escalating air pollution, which poses several challenges during the winter months. Some residents have reported issues such as reduced visibility and respiratory difficulties, particularly during the early morning and evening. To address these concerns and ensure the well-being of citizens, measures have been put in place. The municipal authorities have mandated the installation of air quality monitoring systems at construction sites, particularly for tire washing activities, to prevent the dispersion of mud and dirt onto the roads.
Municipal Commissioner M. Thennaresan has issued directives to the relevant officials to oversee this initiative. Additionally, a crackdown on illegal water connections in garages and car washing centers across the city has been initiated, aiming to curb this unlawful practice.
November weather forecast
Ahmedabad is expected to gradually transition to colder weather from the onset of November, with a noticeable drop in temperatures anticipated after November 20th. Throughout the month, the maximum temperature is projected to hover around 31 to 35 degrees Celsius, while the average maximum temperature is likely to range from 32 to 33 degrees Celsius. Minimum temperatures are expected to be in the range of 14 to 19 degrees Celsius.
It's worth noting that the maximum temperature in Ahmedabad will remain within the normal range for November, while minimum temperatures are expected to be normal or slightly above normal.
