Rajesh sir, how long this extreme February daytime heat will continue? Will there be any relief. Fortunately low humidity in Mumbai is positive factor.

Sanjeev, see Mumbai will enter March when it becomes warm normally.
By Feb 3rd week. This 36/37 will stop, but will be around 33c.
Nights will be warmer than now.
