Number Theory: An unusually warm start to winter in several states

Dec 18, 2023 10:51 AM IST

A strong El Niño prevailing currently means that this warming is likely to continue

Temperatures across India have started decreasing with the start of the winter season, which officially runs from December to February. However, an HT analysis shows that the season has been unusually warm so far compared to previous winters, at least by minimum temperatures. While the reason for this warm beginning to winter is unseasonal rain in parts of the country due to Cyclone Michaung in the first week of December, a strong El Niño prevailing currently means that this warming is likely to continue. Here are four charts that explain these trends.
