So, are our Himalayas not the coldest on Earth, this time of the year (January)?

The mighty Himalayan peaks(more than 7000 metres above mean sea level) record temperatures of -40 c to -50 c this time of the year (January).. Though relatively less colder than Siberia and arctic Canada , winds on the mighty Himalayan peaks may reach speeds of 150 kmph ..Alongwith temp of -50 c , they can cause wind chills of -90 (will cause immediate frostbite on exposure) ..These wind chills of the mighty Himalayan peaks are the lowest wind chills recorded on Earth during north hemisphere winters (January)



Meanwhile at Maharashtra - LOWEST min temp : Shirdi @ 4.1 c / max temp 24 c

Narayanan : Gujarat is not a plateau .. Most of the state is plains..

On the west coast , min temp decreases as you move away from the sea ( for eg .. please read the microclimates of Mumbai and Goa at -> )

At Okha 19 c is the min temp (because the observatory must be by the Arabian sea)..By the Arabian sea the min temp do not decrease , they remain steady .. and it's windy ..wind chill factor comes into play)..
If u move 2 kms and more inland on the west coast , the min temp recorded will be lower than by the sea (eg.see Porbandar @ 11 c - the observatory must be some kms inland from the sea..may be 4 kms inland)
