Mumbai and suburbs are experiencing isolated patchy rain and thundershower activities from the last few days, but the overall weather of Mumbai has been dry.

During the last 24 hours, Santacruz recorded 13 mm rainfall and Colaba recorded 3 mm of rain, while many parts of Mumbai and suburbs remained almost dry and warm.

Private weather agency Skymet said no significant increase in rain activities over Mumbai and suburbs is expected until the morning of August 27.

“Rain activities will once again increase over Mumbai and suburbs from the evening of August 27 and there may be few moderate showers associated with isolated heavy spells,” said the private weather agency.

Skymet said that chance of extremely heavy or very heavy rains is almost ruled out for Mumbai and suburbs during that period but waterlogging in low-lying areas cannot be ruled out.

The agency further said that day temperatures are expected to drop by a couple of degrees, leading to pleasant weather conditions for at least the next 4 to 5 days after August 26.

“On and off intense whether activities are expected to continue between August 27 and August 31. We do not expect much discomfort for Mumbaikars in terms of heavy rainfall during this period,” said Skymet in its weather report.

Rain intensity will reduce significantly from September 1 and thereafter isolated patchy rain and thundershowers are expected to continue over Mumbai and suburbs until the first week of September.

IMD weather forecast

The India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) deputy-director of meteorology, KS Hosalikar, said that Mumbai rains are likely to be subdued for couple of days.

IMD’s Santacruz observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 31 degree Celsius and minimum temperature of 24.4 degree Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 30.4 degree Celsius and a minimum temperature of 26.5 degree Celsius.
