Regarding the possible reason behind the weather change and its impact over Mumbai, Mahesh Palawat from Skymet Weather said that light showers and few intense spells over Vidarbha and Marathwada regions are likely due to a trough running from Vidarbha to Tamil Nadu.
“Also, there is a possibility of a few spells of rainfall over south Maharashtra regions like Satara, Sangli, and Solapur. There are possibilities of light and isolated rains over Mumbai and its suburbs as well.”
On Monday, the maximum temperature in the city and suburbs remained above the 31 degrees Celsius mark.
