Mumbai rains get even heavier, cross 700 m markMumbai rains have continued to remain heavy in nature, and rain gods refuse to take a backseat from the maximum city. So much so that the city of dreams has been recording heavy to very heavy rains for quite some time now.

While the commercial capital of India was showcasing quite a poor performance during the beginning of the month of September, rain gods picked up pace and the typical Mumbai rains came back giving residents what they had been asking for.

The last 24 hours were no different and the maximum city continued to receive heavy rains. In fact, the rains were heavier in nature as compared to the day before. In span of 21 hours from 8:30 am on Friday to 5:30 am today, Mumbai recorded a whopping 93 mm of rain.

These Monsoon showers can be attributed to the well-marked low pressure area which is currently over Telangana and adjoining areas of South Chhattisgarh and Vidarbha. The associated cyclonic circulation is also tilting southwards.

So far, Mumbai has recorded a whopping 712 mm of rainfall against its monthly average of 312.2 mm which happens to over double the amount of rains.
