Mumbai Weather Analysis

After staying in mumbai for the past 4.5 years, I have come to the conclusion that the weather is not quite what I had expected. I had expected a moderate one with lots of wind, but sadly that is not the case. It might be because of the high rise construction or the traffic, but who knows

I collected data available for a mumbai weather station. The data is available in form of an excel sheet here

Let us start with max temperature

In the summer season, the max temperature has actually decreased from 2010 onwards. It rose to its maximum in the month of May

We can see that the month of November considered everywhere else as a winter month is not so, for the month of November

October sees a sharp rise in temperature as the monsoon recedes

Let us come now to Minimum temperatures

Surprisingly, there is a huge shift between the temperatures of March and April ( the onset of summer )
Rain keeps the climate moderate with less differences between the max and min temperatures which can be seen here

There is again a huge difference between the min temperature for the month of Nov and that of Dec
