Mumbai woke up to its coldest morning of the season on Wednesday at 18.6 Deg
Down from 19.2 degrees Celsius, a day prior. The city’s lowest minimum temperature of the month was recorded on December 14, when the mercury dipped to 18.9 degrees Celsius. The lowest minimum in November stood at 19.8 degrees.
Weather Officials, however, claim that now with proper cold wave conditions having set in the north and central India, Mumbai can experience cooler temperatures.
Mumbai’s lowest minimum temperature recorded in December 2020 was 15 degrees Celsius, on the 29th of the month. As per IMD’s seven-day forecast for Mumbai, the minimum nighttime temperature over the next week is expected to fall further, to about 18 degrees Celsius by December 25. The daytime maximum temperature is also expected to fall, touching 31 degrees Celsius around the same time. This may be followed by slight warming before the month ends, as cold wave-like conditions in central India abate.
