A fast-moving cyclonic storm Michaung, has affected the southern states, causing continuous rainfall across the country. Snowfall in Jammu-Kashmir and Himachal has disrupted normal life. Surprisingly, severe cold, typical for December in North India, including Delhi-NCR, is notably absent this time, with the weather remaining relatively normal.
Weather experts attribute the unusual conditions to a strong El Niño in the Pacific Ocean around the equator. This phenomenon is influencing weather patterns, resulting in above-average sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean. Due to this, this winter is expected to demonstrate the effects of El Niño, with higher temperatures anticipated. The Meteorological Department suggests a milder winter this year compared to previous years due to these factors.
The weather in Delhi will become colder in the coming days. The Meteorological Department says that the minimum temperature may drop by 2-3 degrees in the coming few days. On December 9 and 10, the maximum temperature can go up to 23 and minimum 9 degrees. However, the day temperature will be around 24. This week the sky will be clear and there will be light fog in the morning.
The Indian Meteorological Department has predicted that winters will be mild in the next few months i.e. the minimum temperature will be above average.

This means that from December this year to February next year, the temperature in most parts of the country may remain above normal. However, the maximum temperature may remain below normal in some parts
