The city of Mumbai is all set to see some clouding starting tomorrow. In view of the Cyclonic Circulation, which has been giving rains over Kerala and Karnataka, Mumbai may see some rainfall activities.
The system is gradually diffusing and shifting upward and inland. Thus, clouding will begin over Mumbai from tomorrow. Pre Monsoon rainfall activities on a lighter note will begin on May 21 onward. Thereafter, from May 24, rains could be slightly more intense but not to the effect of causing any disruption anywhere.
The wind pattern has changed now, Mumbai has started to see westerly winds all through the day due to a change in pattern. Earlier, easterly and northeasterly winds used to blow during the morning hours, and sea breeze would set in around 1 pm.
Now, with the change in pattern after the onset of Monsoon over the Bay Islands and Andaman Sea, wind pattern has changed to southwesterly through and through. Winds strengthen in the afternoon hours.
Thus, Mumbai is all set to welcome some Pre Monsoon showers, initially being simply light and clouding being seen. After three to four days, rains may see a proper appearance over Mumbai.
