Mumbai Rains: Surprise shower caught Mumbai off guard

July 8, 2020 10:58 AM |

After the subdued rainfall on Monday, there was a sudden spike in rain intensity on Tuesday over Mumbai and suburbs. Both the observatories of Mumbai, Santacruz and Colaba recorded 58 mm rain each.

In the first week itself, Mumbai has surpassed half of its monthly average of 840.7 mm as until now Santacruz has recorded 589 mm rain. The well marked low pressure area over the Saurashtra region of Gujarat is moving away westward. Mumbai and northern districts of Maharashtra coast were in its outer peripheral strong winds. Strong Southwesterly winds increased moisture and offshore extending from south Gujarat to north Kerala aided in the enhancement of rain activities.

Now the well marked low is moving away, and wind speed is decreasing therefore we do not expect heavy downpour over Mumbai and suburbs now. But on and off rain activities will continue until next week. The isolated short intense spell cannot be ruled out, but the showers will not lead to flooding and waterlogging. Weather will remain comfortable and cloudy for the next one week or so.
