Mumbai rains are expected to continue for the next two to three days and may be widespread in nature. These Pre-Monsoon rains in Mumbai, courtesy Cyclone Vayu will bring down the temperatures to some extent giving the residents some relief. Heavy rains are also expected in other parts of Konkan and Goa.

Evenings in Mumbai will be more pleasant than usual due to rains. Cyclone Vayu is expected to cause very heavy rains in parts of Gujarat causing flooding in some areas, however, Mumbai rains are not expected to be as intense.
