Mumbai Rains: Moderate to heavy showers to continue over city and suburbs until July 17
India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicted heavy rainfall over Konkan and Mumbai with increased intensity from tomorrow.
After receiving one of the rainiest spells in the first week of July, Mumbai and its surrounding areas are witnessing sultry weather with temperatures soaring marginally above normal. Private weather agency Skymet said that isolated pockets of Mumbai and suburbs may receive an intense spell of rains leading to waterlogging in low lying areas.

Monsoon Activity In The Past 24 Hours
In the last 24 hours, Mumbai and its surrounding areas have been experiencing light to moderate rainfall. According to Skymet, the Santacruz observatory recorded 70 mm of rainfall, while the Colaba observatory recorded 22 mm of rainfall.
The weather agency further said that most of the southern, central, and eastern suburbs have witnessed moderate to heavy showers. There was no continuous downpour over the city, and these breaks in rain spells helped the water to flow away, the weather agency said.
Meanwhile, netizens took to social media to share photos and videos of a rainy Monday.
Here are some of the tweets:
