Mumbai experienced a chilly Tuesday morning as temperatures plunged to the lowest of the season, marking a departure from the usual warmth. The India Meteorological Department’s Santacruz observatory recorded a minimum temperature of 14.8 degrees Celsius, dipping below the 15-degree mark for the first time this winter.

Weather experts anticipate a delightful week for the city, courtesy of northerly winds making their presence felt. Sunil Kamble, Director of IMD Mumbai, highlighted, “The city is currently enjoying pleasant weather due to the influence of northerly wind components. Minimum temperatures are expected to linger around 17 degrees Celsius for the next few days, while maximum temperatures will hover around 32 degrees Celsius.”

Kamble further stated, “Although there might be a slight increase in temperatures after the initial two to three days, the overall weather is anticipated to remain pleasant.”

While the Santacruz observatory reported a minimum temperature of 14.8 degrees Celsius, which is two degrees below the normal range, the Colaba station recorded a minimum temperature of 19.6 degrees Celsius. Maximum temperatures in the city hovered around 31 degrees Celsius.

Notably, Mumbai had witnessed its lowest temperature on January 21, when the mercury dropped below 16.1 degrees Celsius.

However, amidst the cool spell, the city’s air quality took a hit, with the overall Air Quality Index (AQI) reaching 130 on Tuesday morning. The Deonar area recorded a ‘very poor’ air quality level at 335. In contrast, some pockets boasted better air quality, with Borivali East (71), Colaba (80), Vile Parle (81), and Powai (88) showcasing double-digit AQI values.
