HYDERABAD: It was perhaps the warmest winter that the city has experienced. While the northern parts of the country were covered under snow these past few weeks, Hyderabadis had to sweat a bit. But hang on! the weather is changing and this winter, like the last flicker of a candle flame, may just burn bright or rather wax a bit longer.

In a pleasant surprise, it drizzled a little the other day and temperatures, both day and night, dipped. The minimum temperature recorded on Wednesday was 16 degrees Celsius. It is expected to be around 17 Thursday and 16 Friday and light rain is also expected.

“Due to the upper wind circulations near the coastal belt, the entire State was warming up dragging a lot of moisture from the Bay of Bengal. The simultaneous arrival of cyclone ‘Thane’, which created a low pressure over the Arabian sea and the Bay of Bengal had made Central India and the Deccan plateau warmer during this winter,” explained S Venkateswara Rao, assistant meteorologist, Indian Meteorology Department, Hyderabad. However, now the winter is back and could be with a vengeance. “Cooler temperatures are expected to continue in the city till end of February and the lowest temperature will be recorded before January 20,” he predicted.

According to Rao, the western disturbance phenomena along the Himalayas and central India will also add to the cold weather in the state and cause rainfall in Coastal AP and Telangana.
