Mumbai Rain Alert

Updated on Sep 19, 6:00 AM: Heavy Mumbai rains to continue, traffic chaos and water logging expected

Mumbai rains have once again picked up pace with the Santa Cruz observatory witnessing over 50 mm of rainfall in the last nine hours. The suburbs have been seeing even heavier showers, continuing since morning hours.

Along with rains, lightning strikes are also making their appearances. Now, Mumbai rains are all set to intensify further resulting in traffic chaos and water logging in many parts. This will cause office commuters trouble in reaching their workplaces.

Heavy to very heavy rains will be seen on both September 19 and 20. This will only wreak havoc over the city further, bringing life to a standstill.

Updated on 5:50 pm, September 18: Mumbai records 38 mm of rain in a span of 3 hours, more heavy showers ahead

As had been predicted earlier by Skymet, heavy rains have been lashing Mumbai city for the last few hours. According to the data available with Skymet, in a span of 3 hours, the Santa Cruz Observatory in Mumbai has recorded 38 mm of rain.

More rain of moderate to heavy intensity is likely for the rest of the day. The rain will in all probability spill into the next day as well.

Updated on 9:50 am, September 18: Mumbai gears up for heavy spell, normal life to be hit hard due to waterlogging and traffic jams 

Mumbai suburbs have received good rains throughout the day yesterday. Particularly, many areas of Navi Mumbai have received moderate to heavy showers. Santa Cruz observatory also received moderate rains.

Now, we expect these rains to increase over many parts of Mumbai and suburbs by today evening. Rains will become quite heavy by tomorrow.  These heavy rains in many parts of Mumbai and suburbs are set to hit the normal life. Waterlogging, traffic jams and disruption to normal day to day life will be witnessed. Mumbaikars will have to face difficulty in commuting to work and school.

The reason for these upcoming heavy showers over Mumbai is a Cyclonic Circulation over Madhya Maharashtra which is 5 to 9 km above sea level. This Circulation will move towards Konkan Coast and influx of humid winds from the Arabian sea will further strengthen this Cyclonic Circulation.

These rains are expected to be as intense as they were in the beginning of this month. People are advised to take precautions and keep checking the daily forecast issued by us. We at Skymet will keep updating Mumbaikars our various channels on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.
Also, you can check our Website’s ‘Live rain data’ section for Mumbai and suburbs and schedule ahead of time.
