Mumbai rains have once again picked up pace with the Santa Cruz observatory witnessing over 50 mm of rainfall in the last nine hours. The suburbs have been seeing even heavier showers, continuing since morning hours.

Along with rains, lightning strikes are also making their appearances. Now, Mumbai rains are all set to intensify further resulting in traffic chaos and water logging in many parts. This will cause office commuters trouble in reaching their workplaces.

Heavy to very heavy rains will be seen on both September 19 and 20. This will only wreak havoc over the city further, bringing life to a standstill.

The city of Mumbai has been witnessing on and off rainfall activities for the past few days. Moreover, more than the city, it's the suburbs which have been seeing some good showers. Today also, many areas of Navi Mumbai have been seeing constant rains since morning hours.

Now, after the very heavy spell of the Ganpati week, hefty Mumbai rains are all set to return on September 19 and 20.

The reason for this upcoming rainy episode will be the formation of a Cyclonic circulation over Madhya Maharashtra by tomorrow. In fact, this system is expected to move towards the Konkan region. Moist winds from the Arabian Sea will further aid in increasing the rainfall activity.

Therefore, heavy to very heavy Mumbai rains will make a comeback on September 19 and 20, i.e. Thursday and Friday. These showers are likely to be heavy enough to cause waterlogging in many parts of the city. This will also cause commuting difficult, also resulting in traffic chaos over the city of Mumbai. A red alert has already been issued for these upcoming very heavy spells of rains.


Parts of Palghar, Vashi, Thane, Kharghar, Raigad, Nerul, Panvel, Badlapur and adjoining areas will also see these hefty rains during the same time period.

In fact, Lonavala, Matheran, Mahabaleshwar, Alibag are also expected to see some heavy showers.
