After experiencing severe rainfall in Nagpur (138.8 mm), which was the highest rainfall in the month of October in nine years, meteorologists forecast a comparatively colder winter this year because of extended southwest monsoon. The temperature in the district fell down 20 degrees Celsius.
Regional Meteorological Department official said, “The Northern wind has been predominating recently, and as a result, Vidarbha region has been experiencing cold winds.” He added, there will not be any significant change in the temperature within next two weeks.
Scientist at RMD, Dr Praveen Kumar added, “A considerable drop in the temperature is typically seen during December, which will lead to actual winter in Nagpur at that time, the city of Nagpur may experience winter in its truest form during the month of December. Having said that, we are keeping a close eye on the model guidance.” He also said that over Nagpur and Vidarbha, the drop in the temperature happens because of a western disturbance (in north) and because of a strong north westerly/northerly wind present simultaneously.
