Maximum temperature across Mumbai surged to 35 degrees Celsius as per data provided by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Tuesday. The authorities mentioned that the minimum temperature was at 26 degrees Celsius. Skies were expected to be clear on Tuesday while the humidity recorded in Santacruz and Colaba was 77% and 92% respectively. 


Just over a week ago, the IMD said that average temperatures in the city were expected to be higher during the April - June period this year. The authorities mentioned that the average minimum and mean temperatures in the city will be higher by around 0.5 degrees Celsius during the period. 


Thankfully, farmers can take some solace in knowing that dams across the state appear to be at over 50% capacity, which is a big turnaround from last year when several dams were running dry.
