Chennai is experiencing winter. Though it is not freezing, to bear with 19.7C doesnt seem to be too pleasant. For a few more days, the balmy weather is likely to continue until there is a shift in wind direction that will induce heat.

When skies are cloudless, there is going to be no way to trap heat. Areas a little away from sea are experiencing colder weather.

  • Ennore which is close to sea has seen 18.1 degrees C on Tuesday night
  • On Wednesday, there was 20.7C temperature in Kattupakkam
  • At 27 km from Marina Beach, the temperature recorded at 15.5C right on the first  day of January and it was 16.3C on 2nd January
  • In Poonamallee, the temperature recorded was 16.5 C on  1st January and 17.5 C on 2nd January
  • In the northern suburb at Madhavaram, the temperature recorded was 16.0C on Tuesday and 17.3C on Wednesday
  • In Vellore and a few other northern districts, when set against Chennai, there is about 4-5 degree dip in temperature. They recorded to be 13.1C on the night of Tuesday and on Wednesday, it was  12.7C
  • In Nungambakkam, on 1st January, it was 19.7C.
  • In Meenambakkam, the temperature came down to 17.8C

It was back on 5th January 2010 that Chennai saw such low temperature. And on 17th January 2012, the temperature was recorded to be 17.7C. on 29th January 1905, Chennai had its coldest night at 13.9C.

The minimum temperature was recorded to be 20.2 C when recorded in Nungambakkam on Wednesday and in Meenambakkam, it was 19.3. Being the start of winter, it is common to observe drop in temperature in January, says S. Balachandran, the deputy director of IMD.
