With fewer than 2 full-days remaining, India’s capital Delhi is about to register its second-coldest month of December since records began in 1901.
According to data from India’s Meteorological Department (IMD), Delhi’s December mean maximum temperature has only-ever dipped below 20C (68F) in 1919, 1929, 1961, 1973 and 1997.
“In December this year, the mean maximum temperature until Thursday [Dec 26] was 19.85C,” said an IMD official. And, given the current forecast, “it is expected to dip to [at least] 19.15C by December 31” — the second-coldest reading after 1973’s mean max temp of 17.3C (63.1F).
Saturday, December 28 saw the season’s lowest daily temperature at the Safdarjung Observatory –Delhi’s official weather station– when a minimum of 2.4C (36.3F) was recorded.
The following day, on Sunday, the IMD issued a “code red” cold warning for Delhi, Haryana, and other neighboring states. Adding to the anomalously cold, dense fog reduced visibility and disrupted air, rail and road traffic.
The IMD has forecast “very dense fog” lasting through Monday, with the severe cold-spell –which has already prevailed for a record 15 consecutive days (busting Dec 1997’s 13 days)— expected to run into early January at least.
The weather department added heavy rain and hailstorms will hit several parts of northern India, including Delhi, next week.
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.
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.
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 JS.
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, crop loss and struggle.
Don’t be fooled by bogus political agendas — our future is one of ever-descending COLD.
