Minimum temperature in Mumbai falls to as low as 10.9

While most people think that January means the end of the winter season but that has changed for Mumbai this year. As a matter of fact, Mumbai recorded its second-lowest minimum temperature in January on Thursday as the mercury touched 13.6 degree Celsius. The lowest temperature that was recorded in the season was 11.4 degrees that was on January 17.

However, there were parts of Mumbai that experienced even lower temperatures on Thursday. The minimum temperature in Powai and Borivli (E) was 10.9 while in Panvel 11.19 and Goregaon 12.4. On Thursday, the minimum temperature recorded at IMD Colaba observatory on Thursday was 16 degrees, which was 3.5 degrees below normal, while IMD Santacruz recorded a minimum of 13.6 degrees, which was 3.9 degrees below normal.

Talking about this di in the temperature weather man K S Hosalikar, deputy director-general (western region), IMD, said, “Mumbai and areas around it woke up to one of coldest mornings again in January, with the minimum temperature going far below the benchmark at many places, especially in the suburbs”.

IMD had warned that the temperature of Mumbai and nearby areas will dip post Republic Day and their prediction has been to the point this time around. It is said that the winds from up north are to be blamed for this change in weather that Mumbai is experiencing.

IMD has even predicted that there might be a slight increase in the temperature on Friday but over the weekend the temperature will again fall. While this is a great weather to enjoy the cutting chai and go for nice morning or evening walk at the marine drive, but it is also a perfect time to catch cold if one is not careful. Hence it is advisable that people remain cautious and take good care of their health.
