Rains lashed Mumbai and its suburbs on Friday morning after almost a week of subdued rainfall activity, which led to waterlogging at some places and resulted in slowing down of traffic.


Moderate to heavy rains started lashing the metropolis from early morning, making a strong comeback almost after a week.


The intensity of rainfall was more in the city as compared to its suburbs, the officials told news agency PTI.


Railway authorities claimed that suburban trains were running as per their normal schedule, but commuters complained that there was a delay of around 15 minutes.

Some parts of the city witnessed waterlogging, as a result of which the movement of vehicles on roads slowed down.

The Andheri subway had to be closed for traffic around 8.45 am due to accumulation of rainwater around it.

"Due to water logging, Andheri Subway is closed, while traffic is diverted to Vile Parle bridge & Captain Gore Marg S.V road," Mumbai Traffic Police said on Twitter.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted light to moderate rainfall in the city and suburbs in the next 24 hours.

"Light to moderate rainfall likely in city and suburbs today," the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said on Thursday.

According to the Regional Meteorological Centre, Mumbai City received 53.54 mm of rain and eastern suburbs and western suburbs received 25.06 mm and 26.23 mm of rain respectively in the last 24 hours.

A high tide of about 3.93 metres is expected to hit Mumbai at 10.12 am today, while another high tide of 3.28 metres is expected at 9.44 pm, stated Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). The civic body also said that a low tide of about 2.22 metres is expected at 4.04 pm today.

Since last weekend, the intensity of rainfall had gone down in Mumbai. A mix of sunny and cloudy days were observed over the past few days in the city, which witnessed spells of light to heavy rainfall during this period.
