As predicted by Skymet Weather, rains have started in the suburbs of Mumbai and will continue for next two to three hours. These rains would be moderate in nature and they are in wake of an off-shore Trough which is running from Maharashtra to Kerala in association with a Cyclonic Circulation over the east-central Arabian Sea at the mid-tropospheric levels off South Maharashtra coast. Andheri, Bandra, Borivali, Dahisar, Goregaon, Jogeshwari, Juhu, Kandivali, Khar, Malad, Santacruz, and Vile Parle are likely to get affected.
Nowcast for Mumbai and Mumbai
The conditions are favourable for occurrence of moderate rain or shower at many places over the Mumbai and Mumbai Suburban during next 2-3 hours.

In the last 24 hours, there have been light showers in Mumbai. Colaba and Santa Cruz observatories have recorded 3 mm rains. Now, there is no possibility of heavy rains in Mumbai and adjoining areas in the next one week and light rain is expected to continue. There is also a possibility of moderate rainfall in a couple of areas with slight increase in temperatures.
Updated on July 14, 2019: On and off Mumbai rains to continue for next two to three days
During the last 24 hours, Mumbai rains occurred with light to moderate in intensity only. Colaba recorded 16 mm of rainfall, while Santa Cruz observed 11 mm of rains.
We expect the light to moderate rain and thundershower activities to continue over Mumbai and its suburbs for the next 24 hours.
The northern parts of the city will get to see light rains, while South Mumbai, in particular, may observe moderate spells of rain and thundershowers. These activities would mostly be observed during the late afternoon and evening hours. Some showers are also likely during midnight.
The reason for ongoing Mumbai rains can be attributed to the presence of a Cyclonic Circulation over the northeastern parts of the Arabian Sea and adjoining parts of Gujarat.
These spells of rain will continue during the next two to three days. The chances of isolated heavy spells of rains over the southern parts of the city cannot be ruled out.
Updated on July 13, 2019: Mumbai rains to continue with light to moderate in intensity only
Mumbai rains have significantly reduced during the last 24 hours. The city and its suburbs observed light to moderate rains only.
At present, a Trough is extending from South Maharashtra Coast up to North Kerala. Thus, light to moderate rain may continue in many parts of Mumbai during the next 24 to 48 hours.
These weather activities would be accompanied by moderate to strong breeze. Moreover, waves would be high and may reach around 10 feet.
