Breaking Earth News

Christmas 2007 will go down in the record books as ONE OF THE MOST UNSEASONAL IN YEARS in weather terms. A south easterly change that moved in late on Christmas Eve sent temperatures plunging and brought a return to drizzling rain. And it stayed that way right through Christmas Day with the conditions disappointing those planning outdoor celebrations on the big occasion. It was the same right across the Blue Mountains with day-long fog and intermittent rain greeting visitors. In Sydney it was also unseasonally cool and overcast — far from the image of a sun bleached Santa. Yesterday, although the sun was shining, the temperatures were still well below normal for this time of the year

City wakes up to really cold day
The city of Bangalore woke up shivering on the 26th, with temperature plummeting to 11.8 degrees Celsius — the THIRD COLDEST DECEMBER DAY IN 124 YEARS. The lowest December temperature ever was 8.9 degrees Celsius recorded in December 1883. The second lowest was in December 2000 when the temperature dipped to 11.5 degrees Celsius. "During winter, parts of south-interior Karnataka, including Bangalore, experience sudden fall in temperature particularly between December 15 and January 15." The city is susceptible to cold temperature due to the presence of clouds with moisture just a km from the ground level. "These clouds have cold breeze, particularly in the winter, during which the cold breeze and surface wind mix with each other and reduce the temperature."
