Light to moderate rain in town and suburbs with the possibility of intense episodes in isolated places


The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday in its 24-hour forecast predicted light to moderate rains in the city and suburbs with the possibility of intense periods in isolated places.

According to data shared by BMC, the island city, eastern and western suburbs recorded 0.21mm, 3.94mm and 0.02mm of rain, respectively, in the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 3.83 meters is expected at 2:03 p.m. in Mumbai. In addition, a low tide of 0.93 meters is likely to occur at 8:01 p.m. today.

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

Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Saturday released a bulletin predicting the intensification of a currently developing low pressure system into a cyclone in northern Andhra Pradesh and adjacent to southern Odisha by September 26 in the evening.

The cyclone is expected to pass through northern Andhra Pradesh and its adjacent southern Odisha over the next 12 hours.

“The low intensified into a deep low over northern and adjacent central BoB, likely to intensify into a CS within the next 12 hours and cross the southern Odisha and northern Andhra Pradesh coasts around Kalingapatnam by the evening of September 26, “IMD tweeted.

In addition, IMD issued a yellow warning for cyclones at both locations.

“Cyclone alert for northern Andhra Pradesh and adjacent coasts of southern Odisha Yellow message #imd #cyclone,” IMD said in a tweet.

On Friday, the department also issued a pre-cyclonic watch for northern Andhra Pradesh and the neighboring coasts of southern Odisha.

“Depression over central-eastern and northeastern adjacent Bay of Bengal: pre-cyclonic watch for northern Andhra Pradesh and adjacent southern Odisha coasts,” IMD tweeted Friday evening.
