Mumbai's temperature on Monday soared to 37 degrees Celcius after experiencing a chilly night on Sunday. According to the data recorded by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) Observatory at Santacruz, the maximum temperature was 37.5 degrees while the Colaba Observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 35 degrees.


The maximum temperature, for a couple of days, is expected to hover around 36-37 degrees, said Sunil Kamble, an IMD official. The official attributed the temperature rise to easterly winds.


"We are expecting easterly winds for the next two-three days and thus the maximum temperature will be around 36-37 degrees and minimum temperatures will hover between 21-22 degrees," Kamble added.


When the Western Disturbance system passes, the city receives northerly winds. The northerly winds had caused the temperature dip in the city recently, the official added. 

The city's temperature, on Tuesday at 9.30 am, was recorded to be at 30 degrees Celcius with relative humidity at 33 per cent. 

IMD in their daily forecast bulletin stated, "Partly cloudy sky in city and suburb. Maximum & minimum temperatures are very likely to be around 36 degrees Celcius and 21 degrees Celcius respectively."

Comparatively, in 2022, Mumbai recorded its lowest night temperature for the month at 14.8 degrees Celcius. Meanwhile, the city on Saturday recorded a night temperature of 17,6 degrees Celcius.
