The Mumbai winter has just ended and the city is now gearing up for the long, humid Summer.
The best time of day to be out and about in Mumbai at the moment is in the mornings. The air is still a little crisp and it is possible to take a brisk walk and enjoy the weather with the temperature hovering around 22 to 24 degrees Celsuis.
By mid-morning, the humidity has started to set in and it can be quite warm and uncomfortable to be wandering outside. Whilst the sun doesn't appear to beam down too brightly, the temperature creeps up to over 30 degrees Celsius by about midday and humidity can be as high as 75%. It can feel quite sticky by mid-afternoon, so make sure you always carry a bottle of water with you if are going to be out in the middle of the day.
One of the most pleasant times of the day in Mumbai right now is in the evening. The temperature is still warm and the humidity has receded a little, making a walk along the sea face a perfect way to end a warm Spring day in Mumbai. If you are lucky, you might even catch a gentle sea breeze.
