Mumbai swelters with soaring mercury, light rains likely

March 7, 2022 7:04 PM |

The city of Mumbai has been sweltering for the past few days with temperatures running well above the normal levels. In fact, since the past four days maximums have been settling above the 37 degree mark.

There does not seem to be a respite in the coming days as well. However, this particular weather is not an unusual event for the month of March as there have been instances when maximums have hit the 40 degree mark as well in the past.

The reason for these weather conditions is that it is the wind pattern drives the weather during this time. At present, a Cyclonic Circulation is over parts of Rajasthan and adjoining areas, which has changed the wind pattern. Due to these features, the wind flow has gotten disrupted. Along with this, the sea breeze onset has gotten extended due to the above mentioned features, which has further resulted in increase in temperatures.

The only good thing is that due to a confluence zone formation, there is a likelihood of some light rainfall activity on March 8 and 9. More rains may be seen on March 9 as compared to March 8. These rains are an unusual event for the city as rainfall is not seen in March. There may be marginal respite from soaring mercury for a short duration.
