Srinagar see sub zero minimums, Manali to wait longer

November 20, 2023 3:46 PM |

Srinagar has finally seen sub zero minimums for the first time this season. The city of Srinagar lies at a moderate height of around 6000 feet. Temperatures here dip to about these sub zeros around the 3rd week of November which is a normal phenomenon. Today, the minimum was seen at -0.8 degrees. Earlier, on 18th November, the minimum had gone to zero but remained on the plus side.

Last year, sub zero minimum happened later on Nov 23rd. Usually, once Srinagar dips to sub zero, mostly it remains around there unless some Western disturbance moves and raises the temperatures. At present, even Qazi Gund, and Patnitop are heading towards sub-zero.

As far as Himachal Pradesh is concerned, Manali is the coldest in the state but it has not reached sub zero. Generally, it takes some time to get to sub-zero and it always comes after Srinagar. Last year, Manali never saw the sub zero in November, lowest at 0.6 degrees. Manali sees such sub-zeros in December itself, around December.

It looks like, similar conditions will be seen. Srinagar will go into such conditions. With the arrival of a feeble Western Disturbance, marginal change may be seen and go to zero. However, no impact will be seen in terms of rain, as it will only affect higher and the mid reaches and cities like Srinagar may not see rainfall.
