    The private weather agency Skymet said that the rains would see a gradual decrease by Sunday evening.

    Skymet also said that the decrease is due to the cyclonic circulation over southern Gujarat and adjoining North Konkan region, which had earlier intensified into a low-pressure area and will further reduce itself into a well-marked low.

    This well-marked low-pressure area will further move toward Saurashtra and Kutch, taking the rain away from the city, the Skymet report said.
