The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Thursday that moderate rainfall is likely in the city and suburbs.
IMD said Thursday that the island city, eastern and western suburbs recorded 35.43mm, 52.09mm and 21.21mm of rain, respectively, in the past 24 hours.
Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.54 meters is expected at 1:21 p.m. in Mumbai today. Additionally, a low tide of 0.54 meters is likely to occur at 7:25 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.
After recording insufficient precipitation in August, IMD forecast above normal precipitation in September. The rainfall deficit until August 31 was 9%. The deficit until September 5 was nine percent.
When releasing his forecast for September, IMD Managing Director Mrutunjay Mohapatra said the deficit in August would likely be offset by excessive rainfall in the current month.
