While Mumbaikars saw the city being lashed by moderate to heavy rains across the city as well as adjoining areas, officials from Indian Meteorological Department's (IMD) predicted moderate to heavy rains along with squally winds to continue throughout Tuesday too.

In fact, in the last 24 hours starting from 8 am on Monday to 8 am on Tuesday, Colaba observatory recorded a total rain of 22.6mm while the Santacruz observatory recorded a total of 22.0 mm. “This is a record for the last 10 years in December and the highest ever rain recorded in Mumbai in December was 31.4mm in December 1967,” said an IMD official.

The official added that the city will be covered by dark clouds and can expect moderate rainfall all across along with heavy rainfall at few locations along with wind that can range from 50 to 60 kilometers per hours.
“This is likely to continue till Wednesday morning after which the weather will become normal again as the cyclone is likely to weaken,” said the official.
Meanwhile, the IMD has asked fishermen not to venture in the sea and even asked Mumbaikars to avoid going near the sea including some of the popular tourist sites as the beaches or seafronts citing that the sea will be rough and heavy wave activity will be experienced.”
