New Delhi: India is experiencing a warm Winter, this season. Winter arrived late and it is not yet that cold in most parts of India. Even the Gangetic plains of the North which are very cold during December are witnessing warm days. Thick woollen clothes are still in the wardrobes, heaters are not switched on and the people are worried. The entire Deccan (comprising southern states) is also unusually warm.

The people blame the unprecedented rain in Tamil Nadu for the missing winter in the South. Comparison of 2014's temperature on December 29 with 2015's temperature on the same day throws up some really worrying facts. Just two weeks after the Roadto2Degree Celsius meet at Paris got over, the temperature is actually rising.

The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change claims in its latest report that winter in India will be warmer in the next years, specifically between 2016-2035. Temperatures may rise by half to one degree in north India. Also, rising temperatures will usher Monsoons earlier than usual. What impact this will have on monsoon-dependent crops is currently being analyzed.
