The warm spell this winter, over?December 9th, 2008 - 1:56 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 9 (IANS) Don’t be fooled by the warm daytime temperatures. If you were planning to shed those winter layers, think again! A Met official warned that temperatures are likely to fall and clear sunny mornings will be replaced by a shallow fog cover in the coming few days.”The western disturbances (WDs) have not left altogether yet. So it seems a little warm during the day. But in the coming two days, temperatures will dip as the WDs will leave,” an official said.
“Ahead of the WDs, the weather is warm. Once they leave, the winter will set in soon after. This is pretty usual,” he added.
The weather forecast reports that temperature during the day may still hover around 25 degrees Celsius while night temperature will fall by nearly three degrees and reach 10 degrees Celsius by Thursday.
“In the early morning and night, mist and shallow fog cover is also likely,” he said.
This is not a drastic change from the rather warm cover at present. The official said this was not unusual at this time of the year and that the winter would set in “soon”.
