Delhi, India has been experiencing historic cold since the end of September. It appears autumn has been entirely skipped this year, with Sept. 22, 2020 bringing about an almost instantaneously flip to winter-like weather.
On Monday, Nov. 29, Delhi recorded a record-breaking low of 6.9C (44.4F), and on Tuesday, Nov. 30, the mercury fell to 10C (50F)–two readings that capped the month off as the capital’s coldest November in 71 years with a mean minimum temperature of just 10.2C (50.4F).
According to data provided by India’s Meteorological Department (IMD), the last time Delhi reported a November with a mean minimum temperature equal-to or below 10.2C was way back in 1949, before India was even a Republic.
Moreover, November 2020 finished-up joint fourth on the list of Delhi’s all-time coldest Novembers, tying with 1949’s (10.2C) and only eclipsed by those in 1938 (9.6C), 1931 (9C), 1930 (8.9C), and tied with 1949.
The average mean November low is 12.9C (55.2F).
In addition, the IMD has confirmed that the national capital also braved four severe cold waves during November: on the 3rd, 20th, 23rd and 24th of the month.
“The minimum temperature this month has remained 2-3 degrees Celsius below normal”, the IMD said, whose data also reveals that the historically chilly November just suffered comes hot-on-the-heels of an exceptionally cold October–Delhi’s coldest since 1962.
According to Delhi’s seasonal outlook for December 2020 to February 2021, released by the IMD on Sunday, nights and early mornings will continue to be colder than average.
Responsible for the south’s record-breaking chill, at least in part, is the substantial snow cover building across northern areas — as Mahesh Palawat, an expert at Skymet Weather, explains: the dip in the Delhi’s mercury is due to the icy cold winds blowing in from the snow-laden northern mountains.
This is how glaciers build.
This is also how ice ages begin.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
