Extreme Heat in central India:
On Thursday, central regions of India experianced extreme heat with Akola topping at 44.7c. ( No, I don't take it as 45c, and the poll remains open).
Highest in Asia/India: Akola 44.7c. Highest in Thailand: 44c Tak. Highest in Pakistan: 43.0c at Nawabshah.
A noteworthy point: Nawabshah had a range between day & night temperatures of 27 degrees c ! High of 43c and a low of 16c ! Thats quite a range, I have no records for that, but seems the highest range between day & night I've seen !
Current Weather in Mumbai (Thursday10 pm Local Time): Thunder/Lightning and Drizzle. Some moderately high clouds, with cloud top at -30c, and very light SE breeze. Temperature @ 10 pm: 30c.
Unexpected though welcome, for Mumbai, after a day's high of 37.8c at Santa Cruz. No, it was not forecasted, and was quite sudden. Maybe due to moisture incursion from the Arabian Sea towards a weak trough line near central India, and generation of a lot of heat. As per AWS readings, Thane was 43c today (Thursday), alongwith Karjat also at 43c.
Though,on Friday, I expect cloudy weather ,no rain as such, and the high of around 36c. Nights are going to be very stuffy, with the thermometer not going below 28c.
Posted 21st January Afternoon: Once more, a round of snow for J&K, Ladakh, H.P, and Uttarkahnad with the advancing Western Disturbance ...
