After light rain and thundershowers in Mumbai and adjoining districts in the last two days, the maximum temperature was recorded below normal on Sunday. The day temperature was a degree below normal at 32.8 degrees Celsius.

According to the seven-day forecast by the India Meteorological Department weather bureau, the maximum temperature in the city will increase in the next two days touching 36 degrees Celsius.

On Friday, the maximum temperature before rainfall was recorded at 37 degrees Celsius by the IMD’s Santacruz observatory, which was the second-highest maximum temperature in November since 2016.

The drizzle on Friday evening started from parts of the island city and continued over suburbs like Chembur, Goregaon and the neighbouring cities of Thane and Navi Mumbai.


Dr Jayanta Sarkar, scientist and head at IMD Mumbai, said the city experienced rain due to a well-marked low-pressure area over the east-central Arabian Sea. “From Sunday onwards it will reduce,” added Sarkar.   The IMD has forecast dry weather this week. In the 24 hours ending 8.30 am on Sunday, the IMD’s Colaba observatory recorded 1.8 mm of rainfall, while the Santacruz observatory witnessed only trace rainfall.
