According to Skymet Weather,

A trough is developing from the Southeast Arabian Sea to North Konkan and Goa. Therefore, winds over Mumbai and adjoining areas will be blowing from the southeast direction. These inland winds will be warmer and hence will not allow the temperature to drop. Wind direction is expected to change briefly between December 18 and 20.

Persistent cold winds from the north direction are essential for temperatures to drop over west Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Maharashtra. Another reason for the delay in winter chill can be attributed to the lesser amount of snowfall over the Western Himalayas. We have not seen any active or strong Western disturbance dumping snowfall over the hills until now. Chances of heavy snowfall over the Western Himalayas are ruled out for another 10 days.
