Updated on July 28 2019, 11:08 AM: Mumbaikars to see marginal relief from heavy Mumbai Rains in next 24 hours
Mumbai rains have reduced in the last 24 hours and Santa Cruz Observatory has recorded only 28 mm of rains. Meanwhile, 44.2 mm of rains have been recorded in Colaba.
Now, the Monsoon surge has reduced slightly, but on and off rain and thundershower activities would continue, mainly in the suburbs of Mumbai for the next 24 hours. Moreover, rains may not be a continuous affair and short breaks are expected in between.
By tomorrow, the Monsoon rains will pick up the pace once again and heavy showers may return, thus leading to water-logging in many low-lying areas. However, the intensity may not be as severe as it was the day before yesterday.
