Temperatures likely to be above normal this winter: IMD scientist
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.
