Hot Weekend Coming Up For Mumbai, Drizzle In Some Parts Tomorrow

April 23, 2024 1:44 PM |

Mumbai had earlier thrashed a decade-old record of mercury on 16th April. The city recorded a scalding temperature of 39.7°C, about 7°C above normal and surpassing decade old record of 39°C in April 2014. The coastal city recorded a maximum of 34.8°C yesterday, about a notch above the normal. Temperature is likely to rise further, as the weekend approaches and may as well spill over to the next week.

The coastal towns like Mumbai come in for heat waves as and when mercury crosses the 37°C mark. It has happened only once this season and a repeat is likely. Temperature is likely to ascend and may rise beyond the heat wave mark, during the fag end of the month.

A north-south trough is extending from Vidarbha-Marathwada to Kerala, running across North Interior Karnataka, Goa and Coastal Karnataka. There has been scattered weather activity all along the trough yesterday. A similar pattern is expected today, as well. The trough will shift a little closer to the Konkan coast tomorrow. Mumbai, Thane, and Raigad areas will have scattered clouds and some chance of light and fleeting drizzle. The rain, if at all, will not suffice to provide any soothing conditions. The city and suburbs will continue to sizzle and sulk under warm and humid conditions.

Typical pre-monsoon rains are still away for the city. The financial capital of the country has a track record of breaching the 40°C mark in March, April and May. Monsoon flavour arrives in June only when the temperatures dip to mid-30s. There are chances of sporadic thunderstorm activity, occasionally in the month of May. Mumbaikars have to bear with the hot and sultry conditions for another month or so before the relief arrives.
