35!! I have known it to hover around 30!! but anyways..something could have impacted it like global warming and what not.... i cant say where you get these numbers from..i dont expect people to be precise in choice of words.. so thats ok
And that 33 degrees, you pulled that out from Wikipedia I guess. But you failed to notice that it's the average high temperature. Key word is average. It might go 2 or 3 degrees up some days and 2 or 3 degrees lower on other days.
One more thing, temperature in Mumbai is measured at two place. Colaba and Santacruz. Colaba temperature in summer is always about 1-2 degrees lower than Santacruz temperatures because of the sea breeze. But unless someone lives by the sea, it's the Santacruz temperature which really counts for them (although for official purposes it's the Colaba temerature that is considered).
Anyways, before you go on, please remember that my post was about power cuts and not about temperature and what adjectives we can or cannot use.
see thats whats happens... looks like you are a migrant to mumbai... Suburbs feel hotter cos of pollution..and generally are more crowded.. and i said 30 degrees not 33.. so the average goes to 32-33 not 35 again i agree the keyword is average//..so much for your wikipedia.. . Agreed that you can find it uncomfortable.. but all I am saying is its not the heat - its always the humidity and pollution.. btw just out of curiosity where is it do you find.it. hot..Mumbai is never classified as hot - nagpur and pune chennai, calcutta delhi are!!! bangalore, mumbai arent! if you arent used to humidity even 28 degrees can be painful in the suburbs!!
