Smog blankets city amidst heavy pollution

Shanghai is severely polluted this morning as cold air brought smog from North China. The Air Quality Index hit 202 by 10am today.

The AQI will range between 220 and 240 — heavily polluted — in the morning, due to pollutants brought by the cold air, the local environmental monitoring center said.

In the afternoon, it should improve a little, with an AQI of 135 to 155 — slightly to moderately polluted.

With the arrival of the cold front, the mercury is set to start dropping around noon today, and fall further tomorrow, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.
