It’s been brutally cold in Northern India this month, with the maximum temperature in the nation’s capital Delhi sinking even further on Monday, December 30 to a record-smashing 9.4C (48.9F).
This makes Monday the coldest December day since at least 1901 (the Centennial Minimum), as well as the coldest day in the national capital during the December-February period since 1951.
“The Safdarjung Observatory [Delhi’s official weather station] recorded a maximum of 9.4 degrees Celsius, making it the coldest December day since 1901,” said Kuldeep Srivastava, head of the India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) regional weather forecasting center.
For comparison, Srivastava noted the normal high at this time of the year is 20.8C.
Before Monday’s record-smashing reading, 11.3C (52.3F) held top spot for the lowest maximum temperature for the month of December, recorded on the 28th, in 1997 (Solar Minimum of cycle 22).
Furthermore, “considering all the months, it has surpassed the previous lowest maximum temperature of 9.8 degrees Celsius recorded on January 2, 2013,” the IMD said in a statement.
The average maximum temperature for December 2019 until Monday now stands at 18.6C (65.5F) — the lowest since December 1973 (when it was 17.3C), and the second-lowest since 1901 (when the IMD started keeping records).
THE CHANGING JET STREAM
Intensifying swings-in-extremes are in the weather forecast globally, for all of us, as historically low solar activity continues to weaken the jet stream, reverting its usual tight zonal flow to more of a wavy meridional one:
And depending on what side of the jet stream you’re on, you’re either in for debilitating polar cold or anomalous tropical heat.
Recently in the northern hemisphere, for example, the majority of North America is suffering well-below average temperatures, while much of Europe is experiencing unusually mild conditions. And in the southern hemisphere, South America is suffering anomalous cold, while Australia currently bakes.
The full picture is never revealed by the MSM, their agenda-driven reporting allows only for one side of the story — heat and drought (and maybe the occasional flood).
But the truth, regardless of what side of the jet stream you’re on, is that both of these setups can negatively impact crop production. And we’re already witnessing dramatic falls in yield and quality across the breadbaskets of the world — the price of wheat, for example, is now at a four-and-a-half year high, and rising fast…
An intensification of this meridional jet stream flow is in all of our futures, and the phenomenon isn’t the result of increasing –and wholly beneficial– atmospheric CO2 levels.
No, it isn’t you or me that’s causing this climate shift, it’s the sun — as it always has been:
Overall, global average temperatures are falling in line with this historically low solar activity.
However, heatwaves will always still occur –the evidence suggests they could even become more extreme— although the waves will be short lived and/or localized to regions residing ‘under’ the jet stream.
Don’t fall for NOAA’s or the BOM’s politicized, warm-mongering, UHI-ignoring temperature datasets — our future is one of ever-descending COLD and of CROPS LOSS.
Don’t be fooled by bogus political agendas — our future is one of ever-descending COLD.
