Twenty Years of Mumbai Weather

Mumbai is a moderately hot tropical city with a high level of humidity. Its coastal nature and tropical location ensure temperatures do not fluctuate much throughout the year. Mumbai experiences three distinct seasons; Winter from October to February; Summer from March to May and Monsoon from June to September. This, however, has been gradually changing. For instance, the monsoons in recent year have clearly elongated and often there are anomalies in the maximum and minimum temperatures.

Each of the charts shows the temperature records and precipitation for that year. The lines represent the temperature, i.e. the closer a temperature line is positioned to the centre of a circle, the colder the minimum temperature of the day. The further out, the warmer the daily maximum temperature. The colour represents the daily mean temperature. The blue circles represent precipitation (rains), i.e. more the rain, bigger the circle.
