At Colaba, the maximum temperature was 33 degrees Celsius, 1.5 degrees above normal, while at Santacruz it was 1.9 degrees above normal at 34 degrees Celsius.
Weathermen said a similar weather pattern would continue for a few more days. “The day temperature is high because of the existence of a high-pressure condition off the coast. But in the evening, an absence of clouds is allowing the day’s radiation to escape, thus reducing temperatures,” said S Sudevan, director, India Meteorological Department (IMD).
The IMD predicted that on Thursday, the minimum temperature will be 18 degrees Celsius and the maximum temperature will be 33 degrees Celsius.
