The city will not witness harsh winter this year due to less western disturbance in the coming months, Manmohan Singh, director, Chandigarh Meteorological Department, said Friday.

“The maximum temperature will rise during days which will also impact the night temperature as the minimum temperature will not go down very much. Yesterday, the Indian department issued a detailed observation about this winter season,” he said.

The city recorded maximum temperature of 25.1 degrees Celsius. Minimum temperature was recorded as 10.7 degrees Celsius. The weather department forecast that the minimum temperature will range between 11 degrees Celsius and 8 degrees Celsius in the coming five days.

The maximum temperature will stay between 24 and 25 degrees Celsius. The air quality index (AQI) of Chandigarh recorded a moderate category (179) on Friday.

The days will start becoming colder around December 12 when the temperature will start fall to 20.

But it’s only around December 15 that you will need to bring out your jackets, for the mercury will dip below 20 degree Celsius and go down to 18 or even lesser. Interestingly, the night temperature will not see any further decline and will continue to hover around 10 degree Celsius, at times going up to 12.

Last year, the night temperature had fallen to a very cold 6 degrees Celsius after December 15, leading to a number of homeless dying of cold. Fog had also set in early, affecting visibility and flights.
