The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) Thursday said Maharashtra’s Mumbai city and its suburban belts will see a partly cloudy sky with moderate to light rainfall for the next 48 hours.

“Generally cloudy sky with light to moderate rain/thundershower in the city and suburbs,” said the IMD’s 48-hour bulletin Thursday afternoon.

The IMD officials said the retreat of monsoon is unlikely in the next two to three days.

“There are certain features in the ongoing season which are still favouring the rains. Therefore, Mumbai may continue to experience light to moderate rainfalls in certain areas due to the change in wind patterns. However the rainfall spells will be sporadic and not very intense,” said a scientist from the IMD.
