IMD forecast for Mumbai and adjoining areas

Rainfall due to monsoonal reversal of winds are usually confined between months of July and September but this year, sporadic showers have broken out of the usual trend.

A tweet by @IndiaWeatherMan read, “Mumbai & surrounding areas will get showers next 24 hours. More rains likely next week. Monsoon staying at least till 15 October. #MumbaiRains”

Month of October in Mumbai is usually characterised with bright sunshine, relatively clear skies and rising temperature often referred to as ‘October Heat’. However, this year this year’s situation is different. Even though the first week of October is coming to a close, there does not appear to be a significant increase in temperature as intermittent downpours continue to pelt parts of the suburban belt and the island city.

While the temperature in the commercial capital of the country spikes up ranging between 30 to 35 degrees Celsius in first week of October, IMD reported that the maximum temperature for Friday morning was 30 degrees  Celsius.
