Chandigarh, December 1

Nights in November remained the coldest on an average in over a decade.

As per the data available with the Chandigarh Meteorological Department, the average minimum temperature in November was 11.3°C. In November last year, the average minimum temperature was 14.0°C, while in November 2018, it was 12.7°C.

December temp likely to be below normal

A Met official said the temperature in December was expected to remain below normal. “It is expected to be .5° to .6° below normal,” said the official. For the next two days, the sky is expected to be clear.

"There can be many reasons for it such as a persistent cloud-free sky, which causes the mercury to rise during the day and fall at night". - MET expert

The data from 2010 onwards showed that the average minimum temperature in November since 2010 remained higher than that recorded this year.

“There could be several reasons for it such as a persistent cloud-free sky, which causes the temperature to rise during the day and fall at night. It also depends on the planetary scale,” said a scientist at the Met office here.

On the other hand, the average maximum temperature this November was 26.5°C. Last year, it was 26.2°C and 26.9°C in 2018. Last month saw the minimum temperature drop to 8.1°C on November 22, the coldest November night in three years. The lowest maximum temperature during the month was 19.2°C on November 26. It was the coldest November day in a decade.
