Why Mumbai facing a sudden gust of warmness?

On the other hand, the air quality index is at a moderate stage, confirming that the air in the city is satisfactory. Having said that, a few researchers claim that increase in temperature is due to the dust carried by easterly winds. Thereby the combination of calm winds and easterly winds engenders a rise in pollution .
