Railways, Airlines be aware! Rains to increase further in Mumbai by July 02, says Skymet
In past two days, the India’s financial hub Mumbai has been receiving fruitful rains across areas, which makes monsoon quite enjoyable. The airlines and railways have been operating in a peaceful manner. According to a Skymet report today, the entire state of Maharashtra including Mumbai have been receiving good rainfall activity in varied intensity. During the last 24 hours, Mumbai and adjoining areas have received moderate rainfall activity over many places.
During last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Mumbai’s Santacruz observatory recorded 20 mm of rain, followed by Colaba observatory at 7 mm, other places like Thane recorded 58.4 mm of rain, Sholapur 47.9 mm, Mahabaleshwar 44.6 mm, Vengurla 38 mm, Alibagh 36 mm, Akola 26.8 mm, Ratnagiri 25.5 mm, Harnai 23 mm, Nagpur 17.9 mm, Jalgaon 6 mm.
According to Skymet, light to moderate rains with few heavy spells have occurred over many parts of Vidarbha and along the coast. In fact, good rains also occurred over South Madhya Maharashtra.
Light to moderate intensity monsoon condition is likely to continue for next 48 hours.
However, after that, Skymet believes that the off-shore trough extending from Gujarat Coast to Kerala Coast is likely to weaken further, as a cyclonic circulation which has formed over Northeast Arabian Sea may pull the trough towards the Sea.
Further, Skyment believes, these activities are likely to revive by July 2nd and mainly along the Coast. Thus, we can say rains may increase further from July 2nd evening.
If this is the case, than Mumbai will be working slow, as airlines and railways operation will take a hit which in return will impact passengers travelling.
