Mumbai rains have once again made a grand comeback with heavy showers being witnessed over many parts of the commercial capital. Moreover, heavy rain commenced over Mumbai and suburbs today morning around 4 a.m. and is likely to continue.
The Santacruz observatory had already recorded 96 mm rain during the last 21 hours. Heavy showers have been going on over many parts of the city. In fact, waterlogging has been reported in many parts of Andheri, Kurla, Chembur, Tilak Nagar, and many other low-lying areas.
However, it was between 5:30 am and 8:30 am that the deluge rainfall happened. Mumbai saw a whopping 157 mm of rain in three hours taking the 24-hour rain figure to 253 mm.
Currently, a low-pressure area is persisting over Southern parts of Gujarat, and monsoon surge is active over the entire West Coast of the country right from South Gujarat down to the Kerala coast. In the wake of these weather parameters, moderate to heavy showers with isolated intense spells are expected to continue over Mumbai and suburbs for another 24-48 hours.
In fact, many parts of the city may experience rain amounts between 100 and 150 mm today. There may be a short break in between the rain activities which will allow the water to flow away. Therefore, the chances of the deluge are less. However, low-lying areas may witness some submergence issues and office goers will definitely face a problem in going to the offices.
Talking about statistical figures, between June 1 and July 15, the city of Mumbai has recorded 1024.9 mm rain against the normal of 913.7 mm. As of now, Mumbai is surplus by 12% and with these rains, the figures are likely to see a rise.
