Mum­baikars, who have been en­joy­ing a spell of un­usu­ally pleas­ant cool weather for the last few days, have to brace them­selves for hot­ter days.

The IMD as well as pri­vate weather fore­cast­ing groups have said that tem­per­a­tures are likely to rise from Sun­day.

Ra­jesh Ka­pa­dia, who runs the pop­u­lar weather blog Va­garies of Weather, said the rise in mer­cury is the re­sult of northerly winds be­ing re­placed by east­erly winds that bring in warm air. “From Mon­day, both max­i­mum and min­i­mum tem­per­a­tures are likely to see a rise. While day tem­per­a­tures may rise to around 33 or 34 de­grees, night tem­per­a­tures too would rise to 19 or 20 de­grees,” he said.

Pri­vate weather fore­cast­ing agency Skymet, mean­while, said, wind di­rec­tions would ad­versely hit tem­per­a­tures in the city. “Warm and hu­mid south­east­erly winds would again make a come­back over Mum­bai, lead­ing to a rise in tem­per­a­tures. Mum­bai will wit­ness warm and dry weather dur­ing this time of the year, mean­ing af­ter­noons will be warm and sul­try, although nights can still be cooler,” it stated.
