Delhi records coldest day of the season on Tuesday, temperatures to rise once again

November 14, 2019 10:05 AM |

Seems like Winters have started setting in for Delhi and NCR with Tuesday being the coldest day of the season so far. This is when Delhi’s Safdarjung observatory recorded the season’s lowest minimum of 11.7 degrees Celsius while the observatory at Lodhi Road recorded a much lower minimum of 10.8 degrees Celsius.

The reason for these dipping temperatures were the prevailing cold northwesterly winds blowing from the snow-clad mountains of Jammu and Kashmir towards Delhi and NCR.

However, now the temperatures are set to pick a rising tangent as a fresh Western Disturbance is going to affect the region once again. Now, the smog has thickened, and a thick cloud cover is prevalent over the region. Due to thick smog and cloud cover, the energy released by the Earth during night is being trapped between Earth and clouds, (known as Green House effect) leading to an increase in temperatures. A drop-in temperatures may only occur around November 18.

After recording the coldest day of the season so far on Tuesday, the mercury has started rising and is expected to touch 16° C by Friday.
Delhi’s maximum temperature on Wednesday was recorded at 28.3 degrees Celsius, which is around the normal mark for the season. On Wednesday, Lodhi Road station recorded the lowest minimum temperature at 12.5 degrees Celsius.

Historically, the lowest minimum temperature recorded in November is 3.9 degrees Celsius in 1938. The highest maximum temperature ever recorded in the month was 36.1 degrees Celsius in 2001.
