The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) in its 24-hour forecast predicted moderate rainfall in the city and suburbs with the possibility of occasional intense periods in isolated locations on Tuesday.
IMD said on Tuesday that the island city, eastern and western suburbs recorded 2.81mm, 5.16mm and 2.76mm of rain, respectively, in the past 24 hours.
Meanwhile, a high tide of 3.25 meters is expected at 6:34 p.m. in Mumbai today. In addition, a low tide of 2.37 meters is likely to occur at 1:08 p.m. today.
When there is a high tide during the rainy season, the city’s flooded waters find it difficult to flow into the seas. The low tide will help the city’s floodwaters find an outlet to enter the seas.
IMD said on Monday that an area of low pressure in the Bay of Bengal is likely to bring heavy rainfall to many parts of Maharashtra over the next three to four days.
Shubhangi Bhute, Deputy Director of IMD, Mumbai told PTI that the regions of Marathwada, Madhya Maharashtra, Vidarbha and Konkan are expected to receive extremely heavy rainfall in isolated places over the next three days due to the low area. pressure in the Bay of Bengal.
IMD also issued a “yellow alert” indicating “heavy rains in isolated places” for the coastal districts of Palghar, Thane, Raigad and Ratnagiri between 16 and 18 August.
Several areas of the state received very heavy rains during the third week of July, causing flooding and landslides, after which monsoon activity eased.
