Delhi Records Coldest November Early Morning in 17 Years, Records 6.9 degrees with Cold Wave in Parts of City
Delhi’s minimum temperature level dropped to 6.9 degrees Celsius on Sunday, the least expensive in the month of November since 2003, as a cold wave swept parts of the city. The national capital had actually taped a minimum of 7.5 degrees Celsius on Friday, the most affordable in the month in 14 years, according to the India Meteorological Department.
” The Safdarjung Observatory which supplies representative information for the city, recorded a minimum of 6.9 degrees Celsius. It is Delhi’s most affordable minimum temperature level in the month since November 2003, when the city tape-recorded a minimum of 6.1 degrees Celsius,” stated Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the IMD’s local forecasting centre. The mercury dropped to 6.1 degrees Celsius at the Palam weather condition station, he said.
For the plains, the IMD states a cold wave when the minimum temperature is 10 degrees Celsius or below and is 4.5 notches less than normal for 2 consecutive days. However, for little locations such as Delhi, a cold wave can be stated if the requirements is fulfilled even for a day, Srivastava stated.
Delhi had recorded the lowest minimum temperature level of 11.5 degrees Celsius in 2015, 10.5 degrees Celsius in 2018 and 7.6 degrees Celsius in 2017 in the month of November. The all-time record for the most affordable minimum temperature level in November is 3.9 degrees Celsius taped on November 28, 1938.
Srivastava stated icy cold winds blowing from snow-laden western Mountain range have actually led to a dip in the mercury. Nevertheless, the minimum temperature level will rise by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius in the next four to five days under the impact of a fresh Western Disruption.
The minimum temperature this month, barring on November 16, has remained 2-3 degree Celsius below normal in the lack of a cloud cover, according to IMD authorities. Clouds trap some of the outgoing infrared radiation and radiate it back downward, warming the ground.
The month of October was the coldest in 58 years in the nationwide capital. The mean minimum temperature level in October this year was 17.2 degrees Celsius, the most affordable considering that 1962, when it was 16.9 degrees Celsius.
