The lowest here so far, 1.3 C on 30 december morning. And no rain after 18 september (a total of 3 mms only after that date till now).

Abhijit said...

Delhi Ncr min temp today is S' jung 2.7c, Palam 3.4c, Hindon 0.6c , Gurgaon 0.7c.

Abhijit said...

Mumbai min temp for today is Santacruz 12.6c, Colaba 17.1c

Abhijit said...

Palghar AWS coastal town in Thane district recorded lowest min temp 9.2 c at 7.30am today

Abhijit said...

Nashik min temp for today is 6.4c. Pune min temp is 12.1c today. So Pune is just 0.5c cooler today than Mumbai !!

Arpit Sharma said...

A very important question coming in my mind from the past 2-3 days...Rajesh Kapadia sir:Why Punjab is witnessing above normal minimum temperatures...cities like Amritsar,Jalandhar,Ludhiana experiencing above normal temperatures?

rajesh said...

Arpit: I have answered your question, though i am not an expert, on the "Inter Active" Page of this blog...views may differ.

Abhijit: AWS minimums are difficult to judge..as it is hourly recording..

Abhijit said...

Okk. Sir. But atleast giving some idea of particular area. Now take today's example only. Santacruz in Mumbai city area which is also near to coast was having min temp 12.6 C. So Palghar which is 100km north and open area too can easily 2C lesser than Mumbai. So atleast if not 9.2 C but 10.6C quite possible !

Neeraj said...

It looks that Wednesday and Thursday morning here could be the coldest this winter, temperature-wise.(Your view Rajesh sir?)

rajesh said...

Neeraj: Sorry Neeraj, i should have pushed the "light Blue" shade in the vagaries daigram into Nepal also...so, i feel the cold conditions will increase on sunday and Monday in Kathmandu...possibly near 0c..

Arpit Sharma said...

Rajesh sir:This time i want your forecast to go wrong for NWI...but i know cold conditions gonna abate from 7 jan...

Neeraj said...

Jan 5, 2013. Lowest temp so far this winter, here, min 0.7 C ~ max 18.2 C.

1. North India, Maha freezinf cold, South India warm and hot.

2. NEM comes to an end, no rain over TN since 2013. With weak NEM (almost failure)- TN seems to be driest state of India, followed by SE Interior KAR, south interior AP. This phenomenon is seen for consequtive 3rd year. Definitiely proves RAJ and GUJ are no longer dry states but it turns to be more wetter.

3. Interesting phenomenon on "RED RAINS" - most recently seen over Sri Lanka, KERALA. Interesting attributes related algae, comet particles, aliens.
