After witnessing heavy rain in the past few days, the temperature in Mumbai and neighbouring areas is likely to soar again. According to the private weather agency Skymet, with a decrease in the rain activity in the city and the suburbs, the temperature is likely to rise marginally with some spells of light rains.

The private weather agency has said that the weather is likely to get sultry in Mumbai as well-marked low-pressure area persisting over Saurashtra region is observed to have moved towards the west. Moreover, as the offshore trough is also observed to have weakened further, rain activities over Mumbai and suburbs are expected to reduce further for the next few days.

According to Skymet, the weather will not go completely dry over Mumbai and the suburbs as short spells of thundershowers are likely to continue at regular intervals.

Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted a possibility of moderate to heavy rains in the southern Maharashtra coast, with the interiors likely to receive moderate rains in the next 48 hours.

IMD has predicted generally cloudy skies with possibility of moderate rain/shower in the city and suburbs.
