Mumbai and suburbs to receive rain in the next 5 to 6 days: Skymet

According to the Skymet, the weather forecasting body, the feeble trough running along Maharashtra coast will turn into a cyclonic circulation over North Konkan, Goa and adjoining South Gujarat. Rains will intensify by tomorrow July 3. With this, the moderate to heavy showers will be lashing Mumbai and suburbs between July 3 and 5.  The overall intensity of the rain will decrease but on and off rains will continue.

Last year by this time Mumbai had received a decent amount of rain, but this year people are still waiting for the monsoon to hit Mumbai. The month of June ended with three-digit rainfall for Colaba. The Colaba observatory of Mumbai had received 101 mm rain. The heavy rains remained confined to southern suburbs only.

Last few days have come across as a sense of relief in some parts for the people of Mumbai, as patchy rains continue in some parts of Mumbai and suburbs. People are now waiting for the typical heavy monsoon showers for which Mumbai is famous, is expected to appear soon. The only difference in this year’s monsoon will be that people might really miss going for their long drives to Lonavala and everyone’s favourite hangout spot, Marine Drive because of the lockdown in the city due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The delay in the monsoon this year has left people in some parts of the city face the issues of water cuts. People are hoping that the monsoon arrives soon so that at least the issues that people are facing due to water cuts are resolved. The pandemic has already left people struggling with various problems. The delay in the monsoon would just add up to it. The recent update by Skymet leaves people hoping for a decent monsoon.
