On Tuesday, minimum temperatures dipped in Mumbai for yet another day. On Monday, the night temperature recorded at India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) Santacruz observatory was 16 degrees Celsius, down from 16.8 degrees and 2.8 degrees below normal. The Colaba observatory recorded a minimum of 19 degrees, 1.4 degrees below normal—the minimum recorded there on Monday was 20 degrees. The steady drop in mercury could be attributed to winds from the north, said IMD officials.
