“Normally temperatures start falling in North India from October and in South India from November. We are currently in the post monsoon cyclone season,” said YK Reddy, director in-charge, Hyderabad meteorological department.

“Having said that, there is no indication that winter would be colder or would arrive sooner. Meteorologically, winter is recorded in January and February, while November and December are considered as pre-winter. So far there is nothing to suggest that there will be any abnormality this winter,” he added.
