Lima is going through one of the coldest winters in almost 50 years , surpassing even the same season of 2018, confirmed the National Service of Meteorology and Hydrology (Senamhi).
As you know, winter in this part of the world officially began on June 21 at 10:54 am (Peruvian time) and will conclude, giving way to spring, on September 23 next at 2:50 pm We will have around 63 winter days.
According to engineer Lourdes Menis Álvarez of Senamhi, the winter of 2018 was one of the coldest in almost 50 years. However, the winter of 2019 has already surpassed it in intensity.
“Lima is currently recording minimum temperatures around 14.7 ° and 14.8 °. As for maximum temperatures, we are around 17.5 °,” Menis said in conversation with El Comercio .
“If we compare these reports with those of last year, we see that we are going through a slightly colder winter … We have temperatures 1 ° or 1.5 ° lower than those of 2018,” added the climatology specialist.
Why did the cold increase? According to Senamhi engineer, this is mainly due to the increase in humidity in the environment. “The recurrence of drizzles are being much greater than last year. Only in July there were already 12 days of drizzle, when it is normal to have only five … Normally the humidity is 92% and 95%; however, already we are registering humidity of up to 98%. On days with heavy drizzle, this has increased up to 100%, “he said.
In the opinion of the engineer Menis this type of cold winters are those that are recorded in the chronicles of the history of Lima. Only before the occurrence of phenomena such as El Niño of 2017 “we had already got used to having long summers and, practically, our winters were warm.”
The Senamhi monitors the weather in Lima through three weather stations. These are located in Callao, Jesús María and La Molina.
