New Delhi: Tem­per­a­tures this win­ter are likely to be ‘slightly above nor­mal’ ow­ing to El-Nino, an In­dia Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Depart­ment of­fi­cial said Satur­day. “There is a pos­si­bil­ity of a weak El-Nino,” S Pai, IMD’s se­nior sci­en­tist based in Pune, said. The El-Nino phe­nom­e­non, as­so­ci­ated with the warm­ing of Pa­cific wa­ters with a far reach­ing im­pact on cli­mate of In­dian sub­con­ti­nent and sev­eral parts on Asia, is de­vel­op­ing, he said. Win­ters in In­dia have been warmer over the last 2-3 years.
