The capital city of Maharashtra, Mumbai was observing near normal temperatures since the last many days. Wherein, maximums were settling between 30˚C to 32˚C and minimums were settling 17˚C to 19˚C.
However, during the last 24 hours, the maximum temperature of the city increased suddenly and became above normal resulting in Mumbai weather getting warm. In fact, yesterday, the city’s day temperature was recorded at 35.3˚C and night temperature at 19.6˚C.
This sudden increase in temperatures has been attributed to the feeble trough extending across North Coastal Maharashtra region. Along with this, easterly/southeasterly winds also continued to blow over the area for a longer duration this time, which caused this sudden spike.
However, now by tomorrow, humid winds from northwest region will commence over Mumbai. Therefore, due to these moderate winds, both day and night temperatures will once again subside. Moreover, nights will also become comfortable.
Thus, we can say that high speed northwesterly winds blowing over region will not allow the temperatures of Mumbai and its suburbs to rise any time soon. However, from February 10, winds are once again expected to start blowing from southeast direction which might cause increase in temperatures.
