The minimum temperature in the city dropped Thursday with the suburbs recording 15.8 degrees.
After the mercury dropped to 14.6 degrees on the 19th, making it the second-coldest November day in a decade, night temperatures have hovered around 18-19 degrees in Santacruz and 22 degrees in Colaba.
But on Thursday, the minimum temperature in Santacruz fell more than three degrees from 19.2 the previous day, while Colaba registered a drop of 2.5 degrees from 22.5.
India Meteorological Department (IMD) attributed it to a change in the wind pattern and a western disturbance in the north.
"The winds are now northerly, not easterly. The winds are bringing cold air from Jammu and Kashmir," said VK Rajeev, IMD director.
Maximum temperatures were 32.2 degrees in the suburbs and 30.7 in the island city.
