Mumbai: Record cold
23 Feb 2009
India’s largest city experienced a record low temperature nearly two weeks ago, part of a stretch of cold weather that has gripped the city much of this month
The financial hub of India saw temperatures plunge to 6.5 degrees Celsius February 8, the lowest temperature ever recorded in the city. The previous low, recorded January 27th, 1962, was 7.4 degrees. Such temperatures are almost unheard of in the subtropical city that rarely experiences cold due to its coastal position near the hot Arabian Sea.
