Sees second-coldest November day in 10 years.
Monday was Mumbai's second-coldest November day in 10 years, with minimum temperature in the suburbs dropping to 14.6 degrees.
November 26, 2007, at 14.4 degrees, was the coldest November day between 2002 and 2012.
India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the all-time lowest temperature in November, 13.3 degrees, was recorded on November 19, 1950.
The temperature in the city has been falling over the last few days with Santacruz recording 15.2 degrees on Sunday.
The island city, on the other hand, had a much higher minimum temperature of 21 degrees.
Weathermen attributed the drop to a system in the north. "This is because of passage of a western disturbance along the latitude of northern India. When there is a weather system, we get cold air. This leads to a drop in temperatures. This is an effect of rain in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday," Ajay Kumar, IMD director, said.
"Minimum temperature will be similar on Tuesday, but is likely to increase after that," he said.
