Lohri, which is celebrated on January 13, every year, marks the end of winter season or so goes the old saying. However, this will not be true for Mumbai winter as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) winter is about to make a comeback in Mumbai.

The last few days have been hot and humid but the temperature is expected to drop in the coming two to three days. On January 14 (Monday), the minimum temperature recorded at both Santacruz and Colaba observatories was 21.5 degrees Celsius, which is 1.5 degrees above normal. On the other hand, both the observatories recorded the maximum temperature at 32.8 degrees Celsius. The humidity levels on Monday was between 74 and 81 per cent.

The IMD official said, “The temperature is likely to go down further around January 16 and 17.” As per the 48-hour forecast, the minimum temperature in the city is likely to touch 18 degrees Celsius.

The cold winds from the north are said to be the reason for this drop in the temperature. There has been a considerable drop in temperature over the northern plains. In addition to this, many places in the Himalayan range have received fresh snowfall. Both these factors have impacted the wind pattern and are responsible for the dip in the temperature in Mumbai down.
