Almost all the hill stations in the northern states of Kashmir, H.P. and Sikkim had their initial snows of this winter in the last 3 days.
Himachal Pradesh, the hill state, reeled under severe cold as snow and rain continued to lash the region for the third consecutive on Tuesday,6th.
While the higher reaches of the state were having intermittent snow the mid-hills and lower areas were experiencing spells of sleet and showers. The Hatu peak had 15 cm of fresh snow and in Shimla, Narkanda and Fagu and Kufri had mild snow.
Shimla city had intermittent sleet and showers which brought down the maximum temperature to 7.7 degree on the 6th.
Keylong in Lahaul-Spiti was the coldest with a minimum of -11.9c, followed by Kalpa -6.2c. Una was the coldest in lower areas with a minimum of 1.2c, followed by Solan 1.4c, Bhuntar 2c and Sundernagar 2.5c.

The IMD map shows the nights have started cooling down from the north/north-west regions of the country. Northerly winds are now expected to push the cold air southwards towards Gujarat, M.P. and Maharashtra in 2 days. Temperatures are likely to fall in the nortern plains and Delhi too.


Meanwhile, an artic cold spwell has engulfed the U.K.
The freezing spell that has affected the UK over the past couple of weeks tightened its grip on the 5/6th. with temperatures plummeting down to -10C (14F) in places.
During Sunday night and into Monday, a band of snow spread south, affecting most parts of the country. Heavy snow fell across Manchester, Cheshire, the West Midlands and Central southern England, while London received a dusting by Monday morning.
In Farnborough, Hampshire, temperatures fell to -9.9C (14F), the lowest temperature here since January 1991. Temperatures fell to -9.5C in Woodford, Cheshire, but the coldest spot on Monday night was recorded in Aboyne, Scotland, where the mercury fell to -11C.
So far the winter of 2008-2009 in U.K. has been a particularly cold one with some of the lowest temperatures for 15 years.

But, temperatures are still a long way off the record low of -27C (-16.6F) in northern Scotland 14 years ago.


And, just for information for 2008, the year's hottest temperature was 50 degrees Celsius at Death Valley, California. The year's coldest temperature was -84.1 degrees Celsius at Russia's Vostok Antarctic research station.

Rajesh,
Looking for the weather came across your blog: very good reading your comments about it . I am a Brazilian living in Holland-Rotterdam. Just got back from Brazil where the weather has been quite unlike. Very dry in some regions and a lot of rain in others. Goias and North East(Banhia to Ceara) has not been affected. I am involved in agri-business non edible crops, bio energy. It is quite unpleasant to see 100% of corn been lost because of the dry. In Holland tonight was -15 C. I live here for 20 years and had never been this cold. Live in a very big farm from the 17th century -national patrimonial-completely modern restored. But it is so cold at this moment that In my guests house beside the house we had to close the water plumbing, so much isolated and modern but still.
Although I am graduated in Law and economics have also studied Theology.
Just seeing now the most beautiful places in Brazil where it is still virgin and no tourist comes, admiring the nature and its beauty you cannot deny the existence of a Creator of all this.
Still the wondering and so many questions how spiritually we have influenced all this weather changes.
Want to make sure I am not an expert in weather, however being involved in Green environment, Bioma, Bioenergy you are almost daily with scientists (who are not spiritual at all) and agronomists. You ´ve got to pay attention on it .
In the point of sciences I won´t question, and the people I work with won´t t talk about spirituality, too humanist to do so.
Although more than ever I start to wonder. Doing a lot of meditation and reading spiritual books. Is not a way that God tries to talk to us through this wonderful wonder: The weather?
Looking forward hearing from you.
Kind regards,
