Monsoon conditions have remained between active to vigorous over the commercial capital for the past few days. However, rains have reduced in the last 24 hours or so. During the last 24 hours from 8:30 am yesterday, Santa Cruz observatory has only recorded 38 mm of rains.
While the suburbs did see very heavy showers with Thane recording 256 mm in the last 24 hours, the city did not see heavy rainfall during this time frame. Today as well, rains will be seen, however, they will not be on the heavier side.
Now, as per weathermen, rains are expected to pick once again. Therefore, we can expect the city of Mumbai to see rains of varied intensity, being heavier in between for the coming three days, i.e. tomorrow, July 22 and July 23.
A Low Pressure Area is expected to form around July 21 and 22 over North Bay of Bengal, resulting in the activation of the Monsoon surge. Thus, rainfall activity will pick up along the entire Konkan region also. Thus, Mumbai is expected to see heavy rains as well.
So far, the city of Mumbai saw 1919 mm of rainfall between June 1 and July 20. With the upcoming rains, we are expected to see record rains in July this season.
