Record mercury level in city

By Our Special Correspondent

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, FEB. 10. The city recorded 36.2 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, the highest-ever temperature recorded in February, according to the Met authorities here.

The previous highest mercury levels recorded here during the month were 35.3 degrees Celsius, on February 25, 1972, and 35.2 degrees on February 23, 2002.

In contrast, nights have been very cool, with 22.6 degrees Celsius being recorded on Wednesday.

The highest temperature ever recorded in Thiruvananthapuram was 37.7 degrees Celsius on March 15, 1988.

Unusually, heavy misting occurred in the city around 9 a.m. on February 7, 2001, which led to the weather bureau being flooded with panic calls.

The Met Director, M.D. Ramachandran, said the hot days and cool nights were owing to the clear skies over the city during the past two days.

The mercury levels normally start rising by mid-February, he said.
