Arpit: Your query on Vagaries FB: Your point of view is correct.
In International weather standards, we have an average temperature for a place which is taken into consideration for guidance and for getting the weather of a place . For commercial purposes or tourist information, the average weather of a city is normally mentioned. Take any international weather company of repute, and you will see an average weather for a city.

Normally they calculate the average weather by adding the normal max and the normal min and divide by 2. And then submit the monthly average also.

Several years back, i had put up a suggestion to IMD for giving the average for the deviation also.
Example: Suppose Delhi low today is 5c, which will be 4c below normal.Then it is considered a moderate cold wave...ik...but suppose the day time temp on the same day goes to 27c...it will be 4c above normal. But IMD will still say cold wave and people will FEEL WARM IN THE DAY.

My suggestion was to put deviation as average also.. Like in the above example, deviation would be , -4 and +4 = 0c. No cold wave then...because the night was cold, but day was equally warm to balance the deviation....

Rajesh see this supposed photograph from Brisbane ? http://t.co/IoPUKMKR Could it be a "true" pic ?

rajesh said...

emkay: Pic is for real. The orange/red tint has been made more tinted, that is a greater red tint is given,, The cloud has been made sharper too...otherwise its a typical cumulo-nimbus thunder head with an anvil in the stratosphere..
