Last 3 days of August witnessed heavy downpour over Mumbai and suburbs. But since then the weather lof Mumbai and suburbs are almost dry.
A cyclonic circulation is persisting over Karnataka coast leading to dry winds from south-east direction over Mumbai and suburbs. The reduced rain activities and bright sunshine have increased the discomfort level over the city. Although the day temperatures in Mumbai are still below normal, lack of cloud cover accompanied with high humidity leads to sultry weather condition.
A low pressure area is also expected to form over Andhra coast in the Bay of Bengal. The low pressure area will move in the westerly direction towards south-west Madhya Pradesh leading to active monsoon conditions over the West Coast including Mumbai and suburbs. The east-west shear zone will also move north. All these weather parameters will ensure that Mumbai gets few good spells of rain and thundershower activities in coming days.
The upcoming rains will certainly give much-needed relief to Mumbaikars from the ongoing hot weather condition. Rains activities will start from today and will intensify between September 12 and 14. Thereafter also, the weather of Mumbai will not go completely dry.
On and off rains will continue over Mumbai and suburbs during next week. Heavy to very heavy rains are ruled out for Mumbai in the coming days. Chances of flash floods and severe waterlogging are also ruled out.
