Delhi/Agra at the end of December

I am considering spending a bit of time in Delhi and Agra for vacation. In the last two weeks of December, how is the air pollution? Like 50% chance of smog or 100% chance of smog?

smog is typically at its worst in mid january....last year there was little to no smog in & around delhi in december....

having said that, there have been years where there was been a decent amount of smog in december as well so its impossible to be sure....

air pollution would be at its worst towards the end of october & beginning of november....

Fog is bad at this time of the year too, if you’re concerned about traffic and views.

About smog, it hits me worse at other times of the year in the area than around Dec 15-Jan 15th. But even at this time of year, the air pollution is not good and can cause irritation and means that blowing your nose may mean black snot.
