You must also be feeling some effect of the increased temperature for the past one week. Till a week ago, those bathing with hot water are taking a bath with cold water, the fan has also returned to work.
- The year 2020 was the eighth warmest year in Indian history. This year, the temperature was recorded to be 0.29 degrees Celsius above normal.
- According to NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information report, January 2021 was the hottest January month in history.
- In the year 1990, the melting rate of glacier was 80,000 million tons per year, in the year 2017 has increased to 130,000 crore tons per year.
- In February this year, the average temperature in eastern Odisha rose by 3-4 degrees Celsius, so migratory birds returned a few weeks earlier.
Kuldeep Srivastava, head of the weather forecasting center, New Delhi, says, "Western disturbances usually have a significant effect on the weather in northern India. The weather will be according to the western disturbances that will come. Usually six in the month of February Western Disturbance comes but this time there is only one Western Disturbance. "
Kuldeep Srivastava says that this Western Disturbance also came on February 4. He says, "Western Disturbance brings with it rain and with it clouds are also formed. Since there is no Western Disturbance, there are no clouds and because of this the sunlight is coming in full. And when the sun comes If the light is met, then the temperature will rise. "
He says, "Since there is only one western disturbance, due to this, the temperature has increased due to sunlight. Also the slow wind speed is an effective reason."
Temperature rise is becoming normal
According to Dr. Roxy Matthews, Climate Scientist at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, "The temperature in which we live is normal. Almost every year and every month is slightly warmer than the year before and the month before."
"Despite La Niña being in the eastern Pacific Ocean, the year 2020 was one of the hottest years. La Niña usually causes a decrease in temperature, but it has also been ineffective due to the increasing impact of global warming. That's why now The La Niña years are warmer than the previous El Niño years.
La Niña and El Niño are processes associated with the Pacific Ocean. It is the events in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean that affect the global climate on a large scale. Due to El Nino, where warm winds move and the temperature rises by two to four degrees, La Niña causes cold winds in the eastern Pacific Ocean, where the temperature is reduced from three to five degrees Celsius above normal and this causes global The temperature decreases.
