It’s going to hover at a pleasing 16 Degrees in the night, even as day temperatures rise to 32 Degrees. But beware of seasonal illnesses.

The weather in Mumbai has been confusing this year, to say the least. We’re now nearing the end of February, and the evenings and nights continue to be cool and nippy.

This, after a horrible four days of soaring temperatures last week, when humidity levels also rose, giving a glimpse of the kind of summer this city can expect this year.

However, minimum temperatures of 16 Degrees or lower have rarely been seen in February in Mumbai. Since the beginning of this week, from Sunday evening, to be precise, minimum temperatures dipped to about four Degrees below normal all over Mumbai. As per the bulletin for Friday and Saturday issued by the Indian Meteorology Department (Mumbai), minimum and maximum temperatures for Mumbai expected to be 17 Degree Celsius and 31 Degree Celsius respectively.

“Another western disturbance is active over Afghanistan. It will take another day or two for the system to reach India. If the wind conditions are right, then Mumbai temperatures may dip once again,” said VK Rajeev, speaking to a city newspaper yesterday.
