With the intensity of rains reducing since from Friday, Mumbai has been experiencing light rains with occasional thundershowers. According to private weather service Skymet, the city and the suburbs are likely to experience moderate to heavy rains between August 11 and August 15.

The private weather service said that the rains may not be as heavy as witnessed in the past few days in Mumbai, but it did not rule the possibility of waterlogging in the low-lying areas of the city and the suburbs.

As the city is not expected to see much rain activities over the weekend, Skymet said that the city temperatures are likely to see a marginal increase. But the rains Mumbai will experience between August 11 and 15 will bring the temperatures down by two to three degrees Celsius, the private weather service reported, adding that the showers will also add water in the reservoirs.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) expressed a possibility of increased rain activities over the west coast including Mumbai between August 10 and August 11, that is likely to last for a week.

Monsoon Activities in the past 24 hours

According to Skymet, both Santacruz and Colaba observatories recorded 12mm rains each in the past 24 hours. The extremely heavy rains that battered Mumbai this week have led to both the observatories recording more than the seasonal average of rains.

On the other hand, the Colaba observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 29 degrees Celsius and a minimum temperature of 26 degrees Celsius
