Mumbai, October 10: Following a slight dip in temperature over the past two days, the mercury is set to soar again as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the city's maximum temperature to resurrect.
From the weekend onwards, the IMD officials said, Mumbai's weather will turn hotter as the impact of Luban and Titli cyclonic storms will subside. Due to the two storms, a depression has been created in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, respectively, which has increased humidity and brought down temperatures in the coastal parts. Hottest October Since 2015 in Mumbai, Says IMD.
The depression in the Arabian Sea was the reason behind Mumbai witnessing super-humid days and cloudy mornings over the last two days, the weather department said.
Notably, the maximum temperature in Mumbai today clocked up to 33 degree celsius, whereas, the minimum was recorded to be 27 degrees. By Saturday, the maximum-mark is predicted to go up by two notches - at 35 degree celsius. Global Warming at 1.5°C: Rapid, Far-Reaching Changes Needed, Says IPCC.
The IMD has already declared this year's October in Mumbai as the "hottest since 2015". Although the month usually witnesses rains combined with thunders in the first week, no downpour was recorded this year.
According to experts, Mumbaikars would be relieved of the scorching heat only in the next month, with the onset of Winter.
