Air quality improves to good as chilly winds move in

SHANGHAI’S air quality improved this morning due to an increase in winds after the city had moderate to heavy pollution for three days.

The density of dangerous PM2.5 particles dropped to 27.5 micrograms per cubic meter at 11am, according to local environment monitors.

The city’s air quality level was good in the morning with the AQI plunging below 150.

It also was chillier. The benchmark Xujiahui weather station recorded a low of 2 degrees Celsius in the morning, while the mercury dipped to zero degrees Celsius in some suburban areas. Today’s high will stay around 5 degrees.

Cold air from the north is expected to push the mercury to a low of zero tomorrow, the weather bureau forecast.

Sunny and partly cloudy days will continue until the weekend with high temperatures climbing to 15 degrees.
