New Delhi, Nov 12 (PTI) Light rains predicted on November 14 and 15 is likely to clear the smog in Delhi and bring respite to the people gasping for breath.

The minimum temperature today touched 13 degrees Celsius, one notch below the season's average while the maximum temperature was recorded at 28.4 degrees Celsius.

Humidity levels oscillated between 98 per cent and 51 per cent.

According to the MeT department, moderate fog will prevail Delhi tomorrow morning and mostly clear sky during the day.

Light rains have been predicted in the national capital on November 14 and 15, which, the MeT officials say, could clear the smog, giving some relief to Delhiites.

The national capital has been experiencing dense smog for the past a few days, forcing authorities to enforce emergency measures such as banning construction activities and brick kilns due to worsening air pollution.

The "odd-even" rationing of cars, which was scheduled to begin on Monday, was however deferred by the Delhi government after the National Green Tribunal ordered the withdrawal of exemptions given to women and two-wheelers under the scheme.
