Mumbai Rains

For the city of Mumbai, July is the rainiest month and as far as the Monsoon rain performance in the month of July is concerned, invariably, the failure rate is very less. In fact, drought or no drought, El Nino or No El Nino, Mumbai rains have rarely disappointed and almost always surpassed their July rainfall.

Eight out of ten years in July have seen above normal Monsoon rains for July with just two years not being able to meet the required quota.

Talking about the last five years, 2014 saw the highest rains in July at 1468.5 mm. However, 2015, the only year which saw less rains at 365 mm was also a drought year.

2019 has already surpassed its monthly rains of July for Mumbai in just ten days at 865 mm, making it the fourth consecutive July, which has been above normal. 2018 which saw 868 mm rains and 2019 were the quickest, wherein by July 11, the monthly mean was surpassed.

The slowest have been 2016 and 2017, wherein the former saw rainfall amount being met on the last day and the latter also seeing rains reaching their average during the fag end. The rainiest year 2014 had met the same on July 16 itself.

In the last five years, the maximum three-digit rains in 24 hours have been for 2018 with the count being at 6, 2015 and 2017 saw no three digit rains, while 2016 saw over 100 mm of rains twice, and 2014 had 5 three digit rainy days.

Now, Mumbai rains will become mild and no heavy showers are expected for the city for around a week now.
