We are into the third week of October and temperatures are still reaching 37 degrees across the North Indian Plains. Meanwhile, minimum temperatures are also in the range of 19 and 20 degrees. Usually, by this time of the year, the slight winter chill does make an appearance over some parts of the country.
However, this time, winter has been showing no signs. One of the reasons for the absence of winter signs can be attributed to the continuous flow of easterly and southeasterly winds from Bay of Bengal. One after another weather systems developed in the Bay of Bengal and eastern parts of the country which caused the flow of these winds.
Until and unless there are dry northerly and northwesterly winds persisting over the region, minimums continue to be on the higher side. Thus, any sign of winter stays way far away from the region.
