Skymet said that a well-marked low pressure area has developed over Jharkhand and North Chhattisgarh and this will move in the westerly direction leading to activation of monsoon surge over Konkan and Goa, including Mumbai.
Rain activities are expected to increase over Mumbai and suburbs by the night of August 27.
“On and off moderate rains with few heavy spells are possible to lash Mumbai and suburbs between August 27 and 31. Although these rains will not be very heavy to induce severe waterlogging, but low-lying areas may witness waterlogging,” said Skymet in its weather report.
The weather over Mumbai and suburbs will become pleasant, and temperatures will drop by 2 to 3 degrees. The lake areas of Mumbai may also receive few good spells of rain.
