This year, the average temperatures of second fortnight has been at a good 31.6 degrees and the highest maximum recorded was 35.4 degrees on February 23. The temperatures are usually seen rising as we approach the end of February but it has not been the case this time.
Since the weather activity in North India has been continuing with just short breaks in between and is also likely to continue, rise is not likely. North India weather drives the weather activity in Mumbai during this time of the year.
For the next one week, no significant rise is likely at least in the first week of March and temperatures will remain in the low 30's only. This will be due to another Western Disturbance likely to affect Northern Hills on March 1. In fact, due to continuous systems, first half of March may not see shooting temperatures.
