Winter sets in Gujarat as night temperatures drop by over six degrees

December 14, 2018 6:44 PM |


The previous week for Gujarat and its inhabitants was a very regular one wherein both day and night temperatures were above normal. The day temperatures were in lower 30s and night temperatures were around 18-19°C. However, from the past two days, both maximums and minimums are witnessing a fall due to the cold winds from the north reaching the state.

During last 48 hours, the minimums have dropped significantly by 6-7°C leading to cool to very cool mornings and nights over interior parts of the state. Naliya has now become very cold as the minimums have come down to 5.8°C on December 14 from 16.2°C on December 10.

The fall is almost by 10°C,  which is not a very regular affair for the inhabitants of Gujarat. In fact, the minimum recorded here is less than Delhi’s minimum temperature.

The recent Western Disturbance had given good snowfall and rains over the hills. Past its passage, chilly northerly winds have commenced which are responsible for this drop in the night temperatures. As per Skymet Weather, these northerly winds will continue to blow for the coming three to four days. Thus further fall in day and night temperatures can be seen, although this fall in temperature will be a marginal one in comparison to last two days.

This tells us that winters have finally set in over Gujarat and people of the state must gear for further fall in both the day and night temperatures in the coming two to three days. The maximums are in late 20s, with minimums ranging between 10°C and 13°C over the interior parts.  Few pockets such as Naliya might even see temperatures in single digit.

Coastal districts like Okha, Dwarka, Porbandar, Veraval and Surat will witness comfortable nights with temperatures in the range of 16-20°C .
