Pune, Sun, 22 Jan 2012 ANI

Pune, Jan 22 (ANI): The Indian Meteorological Department in Pune has predicted that extreme winter conditions will continue to send shivers in North India due to cold and dry northerly winds, while the temperatures will remain abnormally low till March.


The director of the Met Department warned that the cold winds can take a toll on people's health and advised to keep warm while braving the chilly weather.


"During this winter, northern part of the country is likely to be below normal. So, we may expect that at least in the extreme north, the temperature should be below normal up to end of February and then by March and all it should reach to a normal situation," said Director of Forecasting Division, Pune Weather Department, Dr. D. S. Pai.


The department is holding La Nina, a coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon, for aiding good monsoon rains this year.


"This year has been a La Nina year and it is in its peak. And from the earlier observation, we have seen that the temperatures meaning, surface temperatures of our north India during La Nina years are below normal. But that does not indicate that it will result in cold wave but as season, as a whole, temperature is likely to be below normal," added Pai.


La Nina is a phenomenon which causes changes in global air circulation patterns and lead to weather extremes across the world. (ANI)
