Light to moderate showers in Mumbai today; start of heavy rain likely next week

On Thursday morning, Mumbai experienced light to moderate showers in most parts of the city including South Mumbai, Bandra, Dadar and suburbs.

After the onset of the monsoon on June 11 and some moderate rain for three days, there has been a slight reduction in rainfall for the time being.

Over the past three days, rainfall has been minimal over Mumbai and will remain so until June 17, when the rains will be light and patchy.

Around June 18, the rains will accelerate slightly and become quite intense around June 19 and thereafter.

From June 20, the typical Mumbai rains are expected to start in earnest. These will likely cause some amount of waterlogging and other disruptions.

These rains will occur due to the emergence of a cyclonic circulation over the Bay of Bengal and as the system moves inland, a confluence zone will result, moving closer to the coast. west.

Additionally, the city recorded an air quality index (AQI) of 46 on Thursday, which is considered “fair.” Air quality is generally acceptable for most people. However, susceptible groups may experience minor to moderate symptoms following long-term exposure.

Today’s weather is expected to be a high of 32 degrees Celsius, with a low of 28 degrees Celsius. Light to moderate showers are likely to occur intermittently in various parts of the city.

On Wednesday, the city recorded a maximum temperature of 31 degrees, with a low of 27 degrees.
