The India Meteorological Department (IMD) Thursday predicted light drizzles in Mumbai till the end of this week and said there is no sign of monsoon retreat from most parts of the city.

The city in the past two weeks received light rain and the showers receded this week.

The IMD forecast for the next 48 hours said, “Generally cloudy sky with possibility of light to moderate rain and thundershowers in the island city and suburbs.”

Sushma Iyer, an IMD weather scientist, said, “Currently, the retreat is happening in North Indian states like Punjab and there is no immediate sign of retreat in Mumbai. So, light drizzles will continue over Mumbai. These will be sporadic spells.”
