Cold Spots Explained

If you are one of those who enjoy watching TV shows related to paranormal investigations, then you are sure to have heard references to the term “Cold Spots”. But what exactly does a cold spot mean & what is the reason behind their occurrence?
In the simplest of terms, a cold spot can be explained as an area where the temperature is cooler than the surrounding area. In ghost hunting terminology, a cold spot represents an area of sudden decrease in temperature or localized coldness usually associated with paranormal activity.

While many ghost hunters consider the occurrence of cold spots as the presence of paranormal entities, it is important to know that this sudden drop in temperature may also result due to other factors. It is a known phenomenon that cold air remains closer to the surface & hot air rises. The presence of a door or window at the ghost hunting site can often affect the flow of air causing hot air to rise & cool air to drop thereby creating a cold spot.

Physical factors also play a major role in our perception of temperature. While objects like a heater can result in warmer air, a cold concrete wall will probably feel cold to touch. Thus, in order to be able to locate cold spots precisely, you either need an anemometer or a professional & reliable thermal imaging camera.
