Mumbai rains have remained unstoppable since the last 48 hours. However, the intensity has reduced in the past 24 hours with Santa Cruz Observatory recording only 28 mm of rains. Meanwhile, 44.2 mm of rains have been recorded in Colaba.
Despite a reduction in the rain intensity, many suburbs have experienced intense spells of rains leading to waterlogging at many places such as JVLR, Kurla, Badlapur, Tilak Nagar, Hindmata, Andheri, Matunga. These areas have seen knee-deep waters.
According to Skymet Weather, the Monsoon surge has reduced slightly, but we expect on and off rain and thundershower activities to continue, mainly in suburbs during the next 24 hours. Moreover, rains may not be a continuous affair and short breaks are expected in between.
By tomorrow, the intensity will once again increase, thus leading to water-logging in many low-lying areas. However, the intensity may not be as high as it was the day before yesterday.
Thus, we can say that there will be a marginal relief from heavy Mumbai rains during the next 24 hours. Thereafter, the city may once again experience hefty showers.
Once the heavy showers return, flight diversions, waterlogging in many parts of the city, delayed and suspended local trains in areas and massive traffic jams will be on a rise.
