Mumbai: Mumbaikars experienced a chilly Thursday morning as the mercury plunged by four degrees Celsius. Santa Cruz recorded a minimum temperature of 15.8 degree Celsius—almost four degrees below normal. 

    The city experienced its second-lowest November temperature of the decade on November 19 as the mercury dipped as low as 14.6 degrees. However, the temperature stabilized soon after. 
    After fluctuating between 18 and 19 degrees Celsius for over a week, the night-time temperature fell 
once again bringing another 
wave of winter. The weather department said the north

    Other cities in Maharashtra too witnessed a little dip in the night-time temperature. Malegaon and Pune recorded 10 degrees and 13 degrees on Thursday. Ahmednagar (13 degrees) and Aurangabad (14 degrees) also experienced cool weather on Thursday.

    The weather department said the chill is likely to continue for a day or two.
