Mumbai rains had remained absent from the capital city of Maharashtra for quite some time now. So much so that the city was observing dry weather conditions for a long time. However, in an unusual turn of events, rain gods decided to give in some showers over the maximum city during the month of December.
The severe cyclone Ockhi which after intensifying into a very severe cyclone recurved north northeastwards. Thus, due to these weather conditions, Mumbai has been witnessing good rains since last evening. Rainfall intensity increased during the morning with the city recording a good 11 mm of rainfall between 5:30 am and 8:30 am today.
