Light to moderate rain with the possibility of heavy periods of rain likely today, according to IMD


The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Tuesday in its 24-hour forecast predicted light to moderate rains with the possibility of heavy episodes in isolated places.

IMD said on Tuesday that the island city, eastern and western suburbs recorded 14.54mm, 20.66mm and 17.65mm of rain, respectively, in the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.42 meters is expected at 12:15 p.m. in Mumbai. Additionally, a low tide of 0.77 meters is likely to occur at 6:21 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.

Odisha is expected to receive a new wave of heavy rainfall from September 26 due to new cyclone circulation, IMD said on Monday.

IMD said isolated heavy to very heavy precipitation activity is very likely to continue over Gangetics of West Bengal and northern Odisha until September 21. Cyclonic circulation is likely to develop over the central-eastern and adjacent northeast of the Bay of Bengal around September 25.

“It is likely to move west-northwest and reach the Odisha coast within the next 48 hours. Under its influence, a new wave of heavy rains is likely over Odisha and areas adjacent to it. from September 26, ”IMD said. Heavy isolated rains are expected to continue over eastern Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh through September 23, IMD added.
