Mumbai Rains: Intensity of showers in city to decrease by Sunday evening

Updated: Jul 05, 2020, 13:38 IST | mid-day online correspondent | Mumbai

According to Skymet, the decrease is due to the cyclonic circulation over southern Gujarat and adjoining North Konkan region, that had earlier intensified into a low-pressure area and will further reduce itself into a well-marked low

Mumbai and its neighbouring areas have been receiving heavy rains and thundershowers for the past three days. The torrential showers have led to many instances of water-logging and falling of trees and branches in different parts of the city.

According to the private weather agency Skymet, the rains are likely to continue for another three to four hours, only to see a decrease by Sunday evening. The private weather agency has said in a report that the decrease is due to the cyclonic circulation over southern Gujarat and adjoining North Konkan region, that had earlier intensified into a low-pressure area and will further reduce itself into a well-marked low.

This well-marked low-pressure area will further move toward Saurashtra and Kutch, taking the rain away from the city, the Skymet report said. Although the rain activity will possibly reduce by Sunday evening, the report also added that the city will not go dry for another four to five days.

Monsoon activity for the past 24 hours

On Saturday, the heavy rains led to instances of a wall collapsing in Thane, tree-falling, and huge traffic jams in different parts of Mumbai, apart from waterlogging in low-lying areas.

According to Skymet, the city and suburbs have received heavy rains between 150mm to 200mm, adding that the cumulative rainfalls in most of the stations can range between 400mm to 500mm.
