MUM­BAI: The city woke up on Satur­day to a chilly morn­ing, with min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture drop­ping to 16.8 de­grees Cel­sius in the sub­urbs, a two de­grees drop from nor­mal tem­per­a­ture. It was the low­est recorded tem­per­a­ture this month.

“Fri­day night the cloud cover changed to clear skies un­ex­pect­edly, which re­sulted in a drop in the min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture since the Earth’s heat gets eas­ily ra­di­ated into the at­mos­phere,” said VK Ra­jeev, di­rec­tor, western re­gion, IMD. “The winds also changed di­rec­tion be­cause of which tem­per­a­tures in the interiors also started to dip.”

While the max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture hov­ered around 31 de­grees, the winds mov­ing from land to sea helped the hu­mid­ity lev­els drop. For Sun­day, the IMD has forecast a max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 32 de­grees Cel­sius and a min­i­mum of 17 de­grees.
