Through this article, we will talk about the 10th month of the year, October 2020. The highest degrees of temperature was observed in Delhi, which was considered the coldest in the last 58 years of human existence. In a situation where the country is battling against this virus, people are sleeping on the streets sometimes with no food in the stomachs. Now, we have to deal with the colder days, and this winter will be indeed full of despair.
According to the reports, October 2020 has been recorded as the coldest month in the last 58 years of lifespan in Delhi. According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the minimum temperature was recorded as 17.2 degrees Celsius. The last time it dropped was in 1962. Due to the climatic conditions, on October 29th, the minimum temperature was recorded as 12.5 degrees Celsius, which was considered the lowest temperature in the past 26 years. Thus, it was recorded in 1994.
An official in the IMD stated that the temperature would be 15-16 degrees Celsius on average during these days. Surprisingly, in the capital, the temperature dropped much below the officials expected. Thus, Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the regional forecasting center, stated the drop in the temperature was due to the absence of dark white clouds in the sky, which resulted in a decrease in temperature. Explaining the phenomenon, he further explained that the condensed clouds trap the radiation and radiate it back to the ground, making the ground warmer. Another reason was the formation of the mist and fog’s layer formed by cam winds. Additionally, on October 31st, 2020, the temperature was recorded at 9.4 degrees Celsius.
Even in the summer season, India recorded the highest temperature in its parts. In May 2020, the scorching sun’s heat continued to blaze its glittering light on many parts of the nation. Among the other states, Rajasthan’s Churu broke the record while establishing itself the highest area in India and the entire world. However, earlier in May 2018, the city in the desert area experienced a temperature above 50 degrees Celsius. Thus, Srivastava confirmed the news and stated the temperature was 50.2 degrees Celsius. Not only in Rajasthan, had Delhi’s base areas such as Safdarjung experienced 46 degrees Celsius. Hisar in Haryana and Banda in Uttar Pradesh were punished with the burning sunlight throughout the season.
If such conditions remain, the government will have to arrange something permanent for its citizens; otherwise, people’s survival will be very difficult on the streets. As the winter is coming, Coronavirus’s spread is likely to take a hike, and shortly, Covid cases will be increased. It is likely for many of us to remain at our houses and sleep under our blankets in the upcoming harsh weather. However, the people who lack a roof over their heads, survive days without food, and tackle everyday stress while traveling distances searching for work are only dependent on the nation’s government. At last, we have two enemies – Cold days and Coronavirus; better be prepared for it.
