It was a cool, misty morning in the capital Tuesday on Diwali day with visibility going down as the day progressed, the Met office said.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD) due to the pollution by fire crackers the visibility will be decreased Wednesday morning with mist in the air.

"The sky will be clear by (Wednesday) afternoon," the IMD official said.

The maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to hover around 28 and 14 degrees Celsius, respectively.

Tuesday's maximum temperature was 26.6 degrees Celsius, three notches below the average for this time of the year, while the minimum settled on 13.4 degrees Celsius.

The humidity at 5.30 p.m. was 62 percent.

Delhi was under the grip of smog for almost two weeks (Oct 27-Nov 8), causing asthma and other breathing disorders to many. Scientists at IMD have said the smog may return to the city after Diwali as there is the likelihood of a western disturbance coinciding with smoke from firecrackers.
