Light to moderate precipitation likely in city and suburbs today, IMD


Mumbai and surrounding areas woke up to cloudy skies and low rainfall on Wednesday morning. However, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) in its 24-hour forecast predicted light to moderate rainfall in the city and suburbs.

IMD said on Wednesday that the island city, eastern and western suburbs registered 0.12mm and 0.02mm and 0.0mm of rain, respectively, in the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.43 meters is expected at 1:48 p.m. in Mumbai today. In addition, a low tide of 0.94 meters is likely to occur at 7:57 p.m. today.

When there is a high tide during the rainy season, it becomes difficult for the flooded water to withdraw. The low tide helps the city’s floodwaters find an outlet to enter the seas.

IMD’s Santacruz Observatory recorded the maximum temperature at 32.2 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, while the Colaba Observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 31 degrees Celsius. The Santacruz Observatory in the western suburbs recorded a minimum temperature of 25.2 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba Observatory recorded a minimum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius.

Several areas of the state received very heavy rains during the third week of July, causing flooding and landslides, after which monsoon activity eased.
