Weather Update, December 2: The cold has gradually begun to display its true colours. The temperature has been steadily dropping in several parts of the country during the previous few days. The temperature has plummeted below zero in the Himalayan areas. At the same time, the temperature in North and Central India has begun to dip steadily due to chilly winds coming from the hilly areas. This has exacerbated the cold in the country’s lowlands. It has begun to become cold in the morning, evening, and at night, despite the fact that sunlight is providing respite in many regions during the day.
Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast a sharp drop in temperature across much of the country during the next few days. The Meteorological Department predicts rain and snowfall in the mountains of Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Ladakh, Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand.

The effect of snowfall on the mountains is readily seen in the country’s plains. The cold has begun to spread throughout the country’s plains. Temperatures are dropping steadily in various sections of the country, including Delhi-NCR, North and Central India. Chilly has intensified in numerous states, including Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi, as a result of cold winds blowing from the mountainous regions, and there is every chance that cold may worsen in the coming days.
Meteorological Department prediction
The Meteorological Department predicts that the minimum temperature in Delhi-NCR would be about 8 degrees Celsius for the coming week. Throughout this time, the cold will worsen at night while individuals will continue to benefit from intense sunlight during the day. In addition, the MID predicts that a cold wave will come in Delhi-NCR by mid-December. In addition, this year’s cold may break numerous records.
For the next few days, the Meteorological Department predicts light to heavy rainfall in states such as Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Andaman and Nicobar. Significantly, it has been raining constantly in various parts of South India for several days. As a result, the temperature has plummeted in these places as well. The South Andaman Sea is likely to develop a cyclonic circulation. As a result, a low pressure region is expected to form over the southeast Bay of Bengal and the adjacent south Andaman Sea around December 5. It will almost certainly move west-northwest and concentrate. During the following 48 hours, a depression will form over the southeast Bay of Bengal. Following that, it is expected to move west-northwestward and arrive near the Tamil Nadu-Puducherry beaches on December 8.
Skymet Weather predicts that cyclonic circulation is expected to develop over South Andaman Sea on December 4th. Under its influence a low-pressure area may develop by December 5th. It may intensify further and will move in West Northwest direction towards Tamil Nadu coast. During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rain occurred over Tamil Nadu and parts of Kerala. Light rain occurred at one or two places over South coastal Andhra Pradesh.
