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.”
The Colaba and Santacruz weather stations have recorded 7.6 mm and 10.5 mm of rainfall, respectively, in the past 24 hours. The maximum temperature stood at 31 degrees Celsius while the minimum temperature recorded was 26 degrees Celsius.
