The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Wednesday that moderate rainfall with the possibility of heavy episodes is likely in the city and suburbs.

The IMD in its 24-hour forecast predicted moderate rainfall in the city and suburbs with the possibility of heavy rainfall in isolated locations.

According to data shared by BMC, the island city, eastern and western suburbs recorded 39.84mm, 44.93mm and 49.12mm of rain, respectively, in the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.36 meters is expected at 12:40 p.m. in Mumbai. In addition, a low tide of 0.70 meters is likely to occur at 6:49 p.m. today.
