Mumbai for the first time this season has seen such active Monsoon conditions wherein three digit rains were seen over both the main observatories. During the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Colaba recorded 230 mm of rains with Santa Cruz observing 175 mm of rainfall.
Now also, intermittent showers ranging from moderate to heavy are expected to continue across Mumbai today as well with breaks in between. The off-shore trough is quite active along Konkan, which includes Mumbai. Commuters may face trouble during evening hours, due to the already waterlogged streets.
From tomorrow, rainfall in Mumbai is expected to reduce to some extent. Day after tomorrow also, it may not lead to three digit rains for the next three days as well. However, July 5 onward, we can expect showers to pick up pace once again and become heavy in parts.
Mumbai during the month of July is the rainiest with city's average settling at 840 mm. This is the month wherein Mumbai has already crossed 1000 mm on several occasions. In fact, Mumbai has seen 944 mm of rains on July 27, 2005, the highest ever in the month of July.
