Scope

The bitter cold in the capital has broken the record of the last seven years. A new record has been set in the seventh year. This time the longest cold day period of seven to 10 days has been recorded at various standard centers including Safdarjung. Earlier in 2015, a cold day period of 11 to 13 days was recorded. Meteorologists claim that after the activation of Western Disturbance, winter can show color again, due to which this new record can also be broken.

For the past one week, the maximum temperature at various standard centers of Delhi is being recorded at four to five degrees Celsius below normal. At the same time, at some standard centers, it has rolled down to six degrees from normal. On January 14, the maximum temperature in Narela was recorded at 11 °C, while on January 15 it dropped to 10.7 °C.

Thus, the maximum temperature in Jafarpur was also recorded on January 15 at 10.9 degrees Celsius. At the same time, the maximum temperature was recorded at 15.4 at Safdarjung standard centers, 14.6 in Palam, 15.8 in Lodhi Road, and 14.6 in the Ridge area, which was recorded in the range of 4.5 to 5.5 degrees Celsius below normal.

On January 16, the maximum temperature at Delhi’s Safdarjung Manak Kendra was 14.8, Palam 12.5, Ridge area 12.7, Aya Nagar 13.6, Narela 12.8, and Zafarpur 13.5 degrees Celsius. On January 17, Narela recorded a maximum temperature of 13.6 degrees Celsius and Jafarpur 13.2 degrees Celsius, which was six degrees below normal. In such a situation, it was severe cold here.

At the same time, the maximum temperature was 13.1 in Narela and 14.7 degrees Celsius in Zafarpur on January 18. On this day also severe cold was recorded here. On January 19, Narela, which is on the outskirts of Delhi, recorded a maximum temperature of 12.8 degrees Celsius and Jafarpur at 15 degrees Celsius, which was five degrees Celsius below normal, recording severe cold.
After all, why does the mercury of the day drop so much 
, according to meteorologists, the sun’s rays do not reach the earth due to the high humidity level in the air in the atmosphere throughout the day, due to the cover of fog. At the same time, due to the icy winds coming from the Himalayas, the coolness in the atmosphere increases further. Because of this, sometimes there is very little difference between day and night temperature, due to which cold days to severe levels are recorded in many areas.According to meteorologists, except Safdarjung and Lodhi Road Standard Center, Ridge Narela, Aya Nagar, Jafarpur, Narela, and Palam areas are recording colder . The main reason for this is the openness of these areas. According to scientists, the Safdarjung and Lodhi Road standard centers are located in the middle of residential areas, while the other centers are on the outskirts of Delhi, with open areas, water sources, and greenery.In such a situation, due to the high humidity level and the direct effect of icy winds, the mercury drops more, while the composition of the residential areas is different. Since the humidity level is not high here, the heat remains for a long time, due to which there is not much difference in the mercury. It is worth noting that Delhi’s Safdarjung Manak Kendra is considered to be the official center of the whole of Delhi.

What is a cold day

According to the Meteorological Department, when the minimum temperature in the plains is 10 or less and the maximum temperature is four and a half degrees Celsius below normal, then all the days are recorded. In this situation, the Meteorological Department issues a yellow alert, according to which an advisory is issued to avoid the cold in the morning and evening. Along with this, the warnings issued by the department also have to be monitored.

What is a severe degree of cold? 
When the minimum temperature is 10 or less and the maximum temperature is recorded at six and a half degrees Celsius below the normal, then the severe level of cold is recorded. In this situation, the Meteorological Department issues an orange alert. Under this, people are advised to stay in their homes. Along with this, it is also asked to keep an eye on the warnings issued by the Meteorological Department from time to time.The longest cold winter days have been recorded in Delhi since 2015. After the passing of Western Disturbance, a new record can be seen when winter falls again.
