Hi Friends
While searching for Badrinath weather, i have found a wesite nuwe.in giving weather forecast of all states of India. Today's Badrinath temp is Maximum 1 degree C and Minimum -10 degree C. You can check out this site.

Regards
alok

Not dependable. For Hyderabad the site predicts max temperatures in the range of 30-35 degrees, when we know for a fact that the max temp. has been and will be in low 40s. I don't know where these guys get their data from, but it's crap.

For Badrinath, don't believe any website. There is not weather station there or in it's close vicinity.

Nearest I can find is Joshimath.

Yes ! And there is an altitude difference of some 1200 Mtrs. between these two places, so Joshimath weather can not be representative of Badrinath weather.

It's possible you're looking at the difference here between measured temperatures, and "real-feel" temperatures (or what's the English phrase).

This can arguably give a skewered impression when looking up temps. and you're not aware of it, so always look for the latter, good weather sites will give them as well.

As far as I know, the concept has been invented by the sites that give it, so their name for it is as good as can be! I don't know how scientific it is. Feels-like? Feels like to whom?

In Dutch, it translates to "feeling temperature," and quite suddenly crept up I don't know when, but some time ago already, I guess a decade or two.

What is meant though is obviously the measured/absolute temperature, vs. its being further influenced by other factors (wind, ambient temperature, whatnot, I suppose). What it usually means here is it's a lot colder than the thermometer says, of course, not warmer

I don't know about the science behind it and admittedly still get a little irked with its being overly used ("Tomorrow's feeling temperature will be..."; I mean just give me the actual temps. already, thank you very much, as in what should I wear tomorrow), but I guess it's based on something. (And, one supposes, there would be professions and such to whom the recorded temperatures will be relevant.)

In any case just look at some of those regular weather sites, when that heatwave was on with you guys (or it still may be, I haven't checked, but the above would suggest so), recorded temps. in those places would still look very reasonable. You do need to look at those other temps. to get the real picture.

I hazard the guess that the site forecasts temperatures based, most likely, on historical data tempered by current weather variables. The output is only as good as the underlying model; one can see it based on the forecasts and actuals at various places.

Guess you are talking about the "number" given when the weatherman (in North America) says "Tomorrow's daytime high will be 19F. However winds will coninue to blow from NNW at 15-20mph, and it will feel like 10F." The "wind chill" factor, "feeling temperature" as you call it: calculated based on relative humidity, pressure gradient etc.

My preference? I watch out for the "feeling temperature". I don't care if the air temperature is forecast to be 19F (with a "feel" of 12F). Would much rather prefer a daytime temp of 15F with a "feel" of 15F.
