In the last 2-3 days, Mumbai and suburbs have been receiving on and off showers. The private weather agency Skymet said that the weather over Mumbai and suburbs is cloudy and comfortable, and no significant rain activity is expected over the city until August 27.

“The temperatures will remain below normal and weather will also be pleasant with moderate winds,” said Skymet.

The private weather agency said that rain activities will once again increase over Mumbai and suburbs by the evening of August 27 and these on and off moderate showers will continue until September 1.

“Isolated heavy spells are also possible during that period and waterlogging in low-lying areas cannot be ruled out. But these rain activities will not be very heavy to disrupt normal day to day life. There will not be much discomfort to Mumbaikars as the weather will become very comfortable over Mumbai and suburbs,” said Skymet in its weather report.

Mumbai has already surpassed its seasonal average of rainfall. These upcoming rains will help to restore the water level of lakes which are the lifeline for Mumbai.
