Mumbai Rains: Gradual increase in rain activities over city and suburbs from August 10
According to Skymet, in the last 24 hours, the Santacruz observatory recorded 19 mm of rainfall while the Colaba one recorded 6 mm of rains
The torrential rains over the course of three days from August 4-6 left behind a trail of destruction with tree collapse incidents, landslides, and vehicles submerged in flooded areas. However, since Friday Mumbai and its adjoining areas have been experiencing light to moderate rains with occasional thundershowers.
Between August 11 and August 15, there are chances of moderate to heavy showers lashing #Mumbai and suburbs once again. We do not expect rains to be as heavy as we have seen recently. #MumbaiRains #MumbaiRainWithSkymet @MumbaiRainApp https://t.co/SoGgsLbbFK— SkymetWeather (@SkymetWeather) August 8, 2020
According to private weather service Skymet, there would be a gradual increase in rain activities over Mumbai and suburbs from August 10. Skymet said that the on and off rain activities are expected to continue for at least 5 to 6 days with short breaks in between.
"The weather of Mumbai and adjoining areas will become pleasant with cloudy to overcast skies. Most parts of Konkan and Goa, such as Dahan, Thane, Palghar, Mahabaleshwar, Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri, and Raigad will receive moderate to heavy rains during that period," the private agency said.
Both the observatories of #Mumbai have already recorded more than the seasonal rain average. The upcoming rains will help to restore the water level in reservoirs.#MumbaiRains #MumbaiRainWithSkymet @MumbaiRainApp https://t.co/SoGgsLbbFK— SkymetWeather (@SkymetWeather) August 8, 2020
