Skymet said the rain activities are likely to increase over Mumbai and suburbs between July 25 and 26
Both the observatories of Mumbai - Santacruz and Colaba - have not recorded any rain during the last 24 hours, said private weather agency Skymet. In fact, most of the suburbs of Mumbai remained dry warm and humid.
“There is no weather system affecting North Konkan and Goa, as well as Mumbai,” Skymet said.
The agency further said that a cyclonic circulation has formed over Lakshadweep area. This will move in northerly direction leading to an increase in rain activities along the West Coast of the country.

But these rains will not be widespread and very heavy. Therefore, chances of waterlogging and flash floods are very less,” Skymet added.
