Mumbai has seen a significant decrease in rain activities after August 30. However, on and off light rain to very light rain are going on in isolated pockets of Mumbai and suburbs. During the last 24 hours, Santacruz observatory recorded 11 mm and Colaba recorded 3 mm of rain.
The weather systems which were enhancing the rain activities over Mumbai and suburbs have weakened. Cyclonic circulation generated from the low pressure area that persisted over Southwest Rajasthan and adjoining South Pakistan has also faded away.
Now weather of Mumbai will go dry for at least next week or so. During this period, there may be isolated light rain in Mumbai because of the localised weather activity. Any significant weather activity over Mumbai and suburbs in terms of rain or thundershower is ruled out.
We do not expect any significant weather activity over Mumbai for at least the next week, the weather will remain sunny with partly cloudy sky conditions. The temperatures in Mumbai may also increase marginally leading to sultry weather conditions over the city.
The withdrawal date of monsoon from Mumbai was September 29th but now it has been revised to October 8 with effect from 2020. Therefore, we can say the withdrawal of monsoon is far from Mumbai and suburbs. Although we do not expect heavy to very heavy rains to lash Mumbai and adjoining areas in the coming days but on and off rains will occur until the end of September.
