After a wet start of the week, Mumbai and the suburbs are not likely to witness heavy rains in the next week as the weather will remain cloudy with light to moderate spells of rain in the coming days, private weather agency Skymet said.

According to Skymet, the weather will be pleasant as the well-marked low-pressure area over Gujarat’s Saurashtra is heading towards the west. The city and its neighbouring districts in the Maharashtra coast experienced strong winds as they were in the outer peripheral of the low-pressure area. The level of moisture in the air increased due to the strong south-westerly winds and the offshore extending from south Gujarat to north Kerala helped in the enhancement of rain activities in the Konkan region.
