As a result, Mumbai rains would also pick up pace. At present, the city is witnessing partly cloudy sky, becoming cloudy during the latter part of the day.

The city of Mumbai saw light rains yesterday accompanied with thunderstorm and lightning. However, Mumbai was yet to see a good spell of Pre Monsoon rains, which would help in dropping the temperatures and bringing in some relief from the ongoing weather.

The typical Pre Monsoon rains in Mumbai, which had been much awaited for quite a while now, are finally here. Rain in Mumbai began during the evening hours and it was the suburbs which started to see rainfall activity first wherein Kharghar, Vashi, Sanpada began observing thunderstorm activities.

Rain belt then covered more areas and almost the entire city started to see Mumbai rains making an appearance. This is the first good Pre Monsoon rainy spell which has made an appearance and is expected to continue for a couple of more days now.

These rains have occurred in view of the the deep depression over east-central and adjoining southeast Arabian Sea which is all set to intensify into Cyclone Vayu by the morning of June 11. The system is currently, 650 km south­-southwest of Mumbai and 850 km south-­southeast of Veraval.
