Mumbai City shivers on second coldest Nov day in 10 yrs

Mumbai: The city recorded its second lowest November temperature in a decade on Monday as the mercury dropped to 14.6 degrees Celsius. Between Sunday night and Monday morning, Santa Cruz registered 14.6 degrees, while it was 21 degrees in Colaba. According to Met officials, the chilly weather is expected to continue for at least another day. 

    The lowest November temperature of the decade was recorded on November 26, 2007, when the mercury dipped to 14.4 degrees Celsius. However, the lowest ever temperature witnessed in the month was 13.3 degrees on November 19, 1950. 
    The weather bureau has attributed the chill to winds blowing in from the north and the northeast. Indian Meteorological Department official Ajay Kumar said, "There is a western disturbance which is affecting J&K. This has caused snowfall 
there. Thus, the chill in the northern areas is being carried to the state by winds." 
    It was not just Mumbai that shivered, severe cold wave conditions prevailed in a number of places across the state. In fact, Pune recorded its lowest November temperature in 48 years with the mercury plummeting to 7.9 degrees on Monday, six degrees below normal. At 7.4 degrees Celsius, Ahmednagar registered not only the state's lowest minimum temperature but also the lowest temperature in the plains across the country. 
City sees rise in day temperatures 
Mumbai: The temperature in Mumbai, which witnessed its second coldest November day on Monday, started dipping on Saturday when Santa Cruz recorded 19 degrees Celsius. On Sunday, the mercury plunged almost four degrees to 15.2 degrees. 
    While the minimum temperatures were on a downward swing, the day-time temperatures saw a rise from Sunday, increasing the difference in the day and night temperatures. On Monday, both Colaba and Santa Cruz recorded a maximum of 33.2 degrees. While Colaba saw a 12.2 degrees Celsius difference in the day and night temperatures, it was 18.6 degrees in Santa Cruz. Coupled with very low humidity levels of 45% in Colaba and 46% in Santa Cruz in the evening, the day was remarkably cold.
