After heavy rains battered Mumbai for the last three to four days, the intensity of the showers have seen a drop. According to the private weather service Skymet, the intensity of the rains over the maximum city is likely to reduce further with a possibility of moderate showers for the next three days.

The private weather service said in a report that the frequency of rainfall has reduced due to the weakening of an offshore trough, which was extending from North Konkan and Goa to Kerala. Moreover, the east-west shear zone has also moved northward, that has resulted in the less rains.

The Skymet report also mentioned that the intensity of rains will further reduce with the possibility of light rains in isolated areas of Mumbai. The temperatures will also see an increase in the coming days, leading to the sultry weather condition.

The Indian Meteorological Department has also predicted a dry weekend for the city  and its neighbouring areas with light to moderate rains.

According to IMD, Bandra Kurla Complex recorded 77mm rains, Andheri received 63mm, Malad 60.2mm, Kandivali 45.2mm and Bandra received 45mm.

The IMD has predicted cloudy skies for Mumbai on Saturday with a possibility of an occasional spell of intense rains.
