Hot weekend on cards for Mumbai

Mumbai is set to experience a hot weekend, as the day temperature is expected to rise significantly in the next three days.

The India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) Santacruz observatory on Thursday recorded 37.9 degree Celsius, six degrees above normal. The IMD’s coastal observatory at Colaba recorded 36.4 degrees Celsius, five degrees above normal. Besides, the night temperature also showed a significant rise on Thursday, as the Santacruz and Colaba observatories recorded above normal temperatures of 21.6 and 24.4 degrees Celsius, respectively. On March 6, Mumbai was the hottest in the country at 39.3 degrees Celsius – the highest maximum temperature recorded in the city so far this year.

Following unseasonal rain that lashed parts of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, from Tuesday midnight, the city’s temperature has seen a significant dip. However, experts said the temperature will increase this week.

“Between March 10 and 12, the city’s temperature may range between 36 and 39 degrees Celsius and by March 12, it will be at its peak. This will happen mainly due to the presence of strong easterly wind, which is delaying sea breeze. However, after March 12, the temperature may again dip slightly,” Sushma Nair, scientist from IMD, said.

The relative humidity recorded in Santacruz on

Monday was 57 per cent. In Colaba, it was 46 per cent. The city’s AQI again dipped to the poor category at 215.
