Mumbai and its surrounding areas have been witnessing a dry run ever since receiving continuous spells of heavy rainfall for three days in the second week of July. According to private weather agency Skymet, isolated light rains with one or two moderate spells continued over Mumbai and suburbs in the last 24 hours.

As per the weather agency, Santacruz recorded 9 mm of rainfall while Colaba observed 2 mm of rainfall in the last 24 hours. "We do not expect any significant increase in rain activities over the city for at least the next four days," Skymet said.

In its daily weather bulletin, Skymet said there could be a surge in monsoon activity around July 31. However, the weather agency said that moderate showers over Mumbai and suburbs will increase around July 31 and may continue until August 3 or 4.

On Saturday, Skymet said that patchy rains will continue over Mumbai but thereafter, rain activities are expected to pick pace around August 2 or 3 over Mumbai and suburbs. Making a weather prediction for August, Skymet said that the month of August may commence with a rainy note for Mumbai and suburbs, thus leading to a drop in overall temperature with the weather becoming comfortable.

IMD'S deputy director-general, western region, KS Hosalikar took to Twitter and said that there are possibilities of rains to continue overnight at isolated places in Mumbai and its neighbouring areas.
