0.2 C as low temp at Kathmandu on Jan 06 2013. Next few days, expected to be colder than this as far as the min temps go; max temps at around 17 C keeping days comfortably warm.

Neeraj said...

My ancestral place is Jumla. It was much colder today at 12.5 C Max and -9.3 Min.

rajesh said...

Santa Cruz 10c is not convincing to me....differences between Thane/outertownships is generally about 3c..and they recorded around 9/10c...the outer towns...and 6c difference in between colaba and Scruz not convincing also...i feel it should be around 14c..or not less than 13c...also check the weather underground hour by hour readings of 6th morning...5:10 am was 16c...5:30 am 12c...5.40am 16c...6.10 am 16c and then 15c at 6.40 am...???

sam khan said...

actually the temperature in mumbai on 6th morning was 11 degree and vasai it was 9 degree.

sam khan said...

but rajesh sir some spots in mumbai suburbs the temperature was between 8c-9c. what do you say about it,as it is much lesser then the outer township, so its possible for santacruz to be at 10c

Neeraj said...

Jan 7 2013. Finally this winter, temp dipped below freezing. Around -0.5 C this morning.

Abhijit said...

Today min temp of Mumbai is : Santacruz records 11.3 C , Colaba
records 16.3 C today morning.

Today min temp of Pune is 7.5 C & Nashik is 6.4 C.

Abhijit said...

Karjat AWS records 9 C as min temp for today.

Today min temp of Badlapur was 9.6 C at 7.10am

rajesh said...

Thanks Neeraj...
sam: where in Mumbai suburbs has it officially recorded as 8c-9c...? i am not aware..
ameya: The "dark blue region" of forecast map refused to rise, the minimums at least..the max rose on saturday in the north and slipped again...(I think i should alter forecasts every 6 hrs like international models)..but the dip in the "light blue regions" were maintaned...yes Mumbai dropped to 16c at colaba and "10.4c" supposedly at Scruz (i beleive it was nearer my estimate at 13c...see fb also for explanation and discussion with graph..

abhijit: how do you mention Karjat minimum as 9c ? AWS shows hourly readings..AWS can never be estimated for minimums..its mis leading to put as minimum..

Abhijit said...

Rajesh Sir : Karjat AWS after 3 UTC updated TMIN temp as 9 C . So I declared as 9C as min temp for today.. At 2 UTC it was 9.5 C. May be Karjat at around 7am had noticed 9C then ! Then how TMIN is calculated ?

Arpit Sharma said...

Yup the idea is good but on daily basis...

Abhijit said...

As in Ogimet too I noticed that TMAX & TMIN are actual temps for that station for particular day ! So I guessed TMIN 9c which is showed by AWS of Karjat as actual min temp..

Abhijit said...

Rajesh Sir : What was trevor min temp for Thane today ? And Panvel also !

Abhijit said...

Today in Marathi news channel IBN Lokmat showed the visual that how Dew got freezed in Mahabaleshwar today morning !
Many area near Venna lake was freezed today due temp drop till 2 C there !

Dear Rajesh
The Max./Min. temps. of Mahabaleshwar have been around
27/12 as per IMD throughout the winter. However, dew
point is low at times and we do feel the chill and there might have been some frost around Venna lake, but that is normal around
water bodies.

AWS sensors record meteorological data at the assigned window opening time usually at the top of full hour GMT. AWS record is NOT a continuous record but it is a record of hourly data. Meteorological parameters occurring between any two full hour GMT may NOT have noticed.
Most of the valuable meteorological parameters are last. Here in cyclone prone area, the occurrence of maximum one minute sustained wind [TIME & SPEED]is NOT captured by AWS
[Now programme has been modified, I think]

rajesh said...

Kaneyen: Yes, tahts what i mentioned and explained to our readers, that its hourly these AWS. But where the IMD mentions minimum like Gurgaon, they have a self recording min/max system...
Thaks Shiraz..its been long since we spoke
