New Delhi, November 20
The Capital recorded a minimum of 7.5° Celsius on Friday, the lowest in the month of November in 14 years, according to the India Meteorological Department.
It is Delhi’s lowest minimum temperature in November since November 29, 2006, when the city recorded a minimum of 7.3°C, said the IMD’s regional forecasting centre.
The all-time record for the lowest minimum temperature in November is 3.9°C. It was recorded on November 28, 1938. Mahesh Palawat, an expert at Skymet Weather, a private forecasting agency, said cold winds blowing from snow-laden western Himalayas had led to a dip in the mercury. — PTI
