The cold weather is likely to intensify in northwest India, including Delhi, during the next three days.

The cold weather is likely to intensify in northwest India, including Delhi, during the next three days while isolated areas of some states may witness foggy mornings and evenings.

According to India Meteorological Department (IMD), the ongoing intense precipitation spell over Western Himalayan Region & adjoining plains will continue during the next 24 hours and significantly decrease thereafter. The weather agency said that Western Disturbance as a cyclonic circulation lies over north Pakistan & neighbourhoods in lower and middle tropospheric levels. It also said the induced cyclonic circulation lies over northeast Rajasthan and neighbourhood at lower tropospheric levels.

There will be no cold wave conditions likely over north India during the next 4-5 days.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday warned of enhanced rainfall/snowfall with isolated heavy falls over Western Himalayan Region and enhanced rainfall activity over plains of northwest India till January 9. However, there will be no cold wave conditions likely over north India during the next 4-5 days.

"Fairly widespread to widespread light/moderate rainfall/snowfall over Western Himalayan Region is till January 9 and will decrease significantly thereafter. Isolated heavy rainfall/snowfall is expected over Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad on Saturday and Sunday," the IMD warning said. Isolated heavy rainfall/snowfall is very likely over Himachal Pradesh till January 9.

A new method to understand the atmosphere of extrasolar planets has been found.

With several achievements such as faster method of predicting space weather under its dome in 2021, the Indian Astronomical Observatory (IAO) located at Hanle near Leh in Ladakh has emerged as one of the promising observatory sites globally.

The obvious advantages of more clear nights, minimal light pollution, background aerosol concentration, extremely dry atmospheric condition and no interruption by monsoon are among the reasons that have made the Hanle Observatory a popular and a promising site belonging to Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), Bengaluru.

The current global temperatures on Earth are unprecedented in the last 24,000 years

The current global temperatures on Earth are unprecedented in the last 24,000 years, since the last ice age, according to a new study.

In the study, a team from University of Arizona created maps of global temperature changes for every 200-year interval going back 24,000 years.

The results showed that the main drivers of climate change since the last ice age are rising greenhouse gas concentrations and the retreat of the ice sheets.

It suggested that a general warming trend over the last 10,000 years, settled a decade-long debate about whether this period trended warmer or cooler in the paleoclimatology community.

Further, the study published in the journal Nature also showed that the magnitude and rate warming over the last 150 years far surpassed the magnitude and rate of changes over the last 24,000 years.
