Private weather service Skymet also predicted that Mumbai and the suburbs are likely to continue experiencing occasional rains next week
Mumbaikars have been experienced light to moderate rains for the past few days, with a drop expected in the frequency of showers after July 26. Private weather service Skymet Weather has said in a report that the rains will pick up the pace again in the maximum city by August 3.
The private weather service also predicted that Mumbai and the suburbs are likely to continue experiencing occasional rains next week. This rain activity is due to a persistent cyclonic circulation over the East Central Arabian Sea off the Karnataka coast and the moderate winds from the Arabian Sea that are feeding moisture over Konkan and Goa, Skymet reported.
Even as the intensity of rains is expected to pick up pace by August 3, the temperatures are not likely to see much surge but the city will possibly experience sultry, uncomfortable weather.
