Record-breaking cold in Delhi

119-year low and more to come.

Delhi is set to end 2019 on a chilling note. The national capital experienced  record-breaking cold on Monday as the temperature dropped to a 119-year low and dense fog kept the city enveloped for almost 10 hours.

On Monday, Delhi registered a low of 2.9C, which is 4 degrees below normal. The maximum temperature was 9.4 degrees, a record-breaking 11.4 degrees below normal.

Unfortunately, as Delhiites make their New Year-eve plans, the Indian Meteorological Department has predicted similar weather on Tuesday.

  1. reckon the Indian Ocean Dipole shifting to neutral migh have a bearing on this as well
    its great for Aus as we will get our late monsoons, and Africa will stop flooding.
    in spite of the warmists hysteria Aussies might well have a cooler n damper jan feb and march and the fires will be less or none once we get some moisture n humidity back.
    one hopes
    Happy New Year to all 😉

  2. Watch the Himalayan glaciers not a post about Central India. I imagine Mumbai to be warmer because it is on the coast. Mumbai suffers from bad floods because the rains are unpredictable and monsoons are out of season.
    Mind you, cold alone cannot explain every advancing glacier. Serious rain will only turn to snow in high mountains so you have to factor in precipitation not just CO2 if you want to understand how the climate behaves and how 1 effect has a knock on effect on everything else.

    I must say that wine cultivation will suffer in a little ice age but on the other hand the quality and tonality of our violins will improve. I might not have the drinks I’m used to in musical venues but the music will sound so good the performers will always get a standing ovation.

    • While warming oceans can account for increased snowfall on mountains that are downwind, warming oceans and atmosphere cannot account for the record-breaking cold winds blowing south from the Arctic. If CO2 was causing global warming, especially in the Arctic, as the warmists claim, the dry Arctic winds should be trending warmer, not colder.
