Mumbai rains continued during the last 24 hours as well, wherein Santa Cruz recorded 25 mm rain in a span of 21 hours until 5:30 am today.
Moderate showers made an appearance in the city and suburbs coupled with some heavy spells that were observed at one or two places yesterday. These significant showers had resulted in water-logging in many parts of the city and adjoining area.
However, as the meteorologists at Skymet had predicted, Mumbai rains have significantly reduced since yesterday evening and only light drizzles have been going on in the city and suburbs at present.
Now, we expect the rainfall activities to reduce further and only light rains with one or two short intense spells are likely in parts of the city during the next 24 hours.
As the intensity of rain would be mainly light, no serious threat as to water-logging or traffic havoc would be seen. Moreover, commuting to office or school would be easy for Mumbaikars.
By tomorrow, rains will further subside and only isolated light rains would be seen in the city and suburbs. Once the Monsoon showers disappear, the temperatures would again follow an increasing trend, leading to uncomfortable and sultry weather. These conditions would continue for the next three to four days then.
The reduction in rainfall activities can be attributed to the weakening of Cyclonic Circulation over the Gujarat region. Similarly, the offshore Trough has lost its strength. And the speed of the westerly winds has also reduced.
