Mumbai: The night in Mumbai is likely to get chilly on Tuesday again as the minimum temperature in the city is likely to hover around 18 degrees Celsius. The city will see a mainly clear sky with the maximum temperature settling around 32 degrees Celsius, the Regional Weather Forecasting Centre said.
In its 48-hour local forecast, the weather department said that the maximum and minimum temperatures are likely to be around 32 degrees Celsius and 20 degrees Celsius.
Why is Mumbai so cold this November?
The weather in Mumbai is chillier than usual for this time of the year due to a likely cold wave. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted that the city’s days will become cooler since Maharashtra is expected to experience a cold wave.Weather experts have attributed the cold wave to the northerly wind component that has been coming over central India into parts of Maharashtra. These north-northeasterly winds are relatively cold and dry and have been blowing over the Madhya Maharashtra region including Pune.
On Monday, Mumbai woke up to a cloudy and chilly morning. The City recorded a maximum temperature of 31.7 degrees, two degrees below normal while the minimum temperature was 17 degrees Celsius, three notches below the season’s average.
In neighbouring Pune’s Shivajinagar, the mercury dropped to 8.8 degrees Celsius on Monday which was a record low night temperature in a decade in the month of November. In 2012, Pune logged 7.9 degrees Celsius.
A warning was issued for isolated pockets in Nashik, Jalgaon, Ahmednagar, Pune, Aurangabad, and Jalna for the next 24 on Monday.
Today’s Sunset will be at 6 pm while tomorrow’s Sunrise is likely at 6:50 am. The moonrise is likely at 8:18 pm, a weather bulletin said.
