Delhi sees unusually warm November this year, third warmest of the country

December 6, 2019 11:40 AM |

Last month India witnessed its third warmest November since 1901. The average temperature in India in this November was 0.72 degrees higher than normal.  November 2015 was the warmest in 118 years, with a 0.87-degree rise.
India witnessed its second warmest November in 1979 when the mean temperature was 0.86 degrees higher than normal.

Considering the average minimum temperature, November this year was the second-warmest since 1901.

The average minimum temperature last month was higher than normal by 1.5 degrees, while November 1979 witnessed an increase of 1.64 degrees Celsius. In Delhi, the average minimum temperature during the month was 2.1 degrees Celsius above the climatological normal.

Here’s a look at the figures –

Normally during the month of November in Delhi the night temperature drops to settle in single digits. However, it has not been the case this time. The lowest temperature that the city saw this November was 11.4°C.

The reason behind these unusually warm temperatures in Delhi can be attributed to one after the other Western Disturbances affecting the Western Himalayas in the month of November. More weather systems brought in more rainfall activities, thus leading to an increase in the night temperature.

Contrary to the weather in November, December has started on a colder note in Delhi. The first six days of December have seen minimum temperature settle close to normal or a degree below. The lowest minimum temperature so far in December was recorded at 7.6°C on December 5, which is a degree below the normal.
