What was the reason for sudden increase in temperature by 7-8 Degrees in mumbai. Today I think was not that hot but humidity was very high. Will we have such high temperatures in April/May as well. like touching 40 Degrees more often.

Rajesh said...

Vinod: Sudden rise was due to the East/SE winds blowing over the region. As shown, the interiors of the North Konkan were very hot...and Colaba and Alibag were not so hot...we can expect a drop now,as mentioned in post. No, not necessary that april will be hotter, in fact, Mumbai touches 40c in march, but rarely goes over 34/35c after 15th April.
