Mumbai: Wednesday evening brought unexpected November rains to various areas of the city, prompting celebrations among the Mumbaikars who had been enduring heat and declining air quality.

According to the immediate weather alert issued by the IMD, there is a probability of light to moderate rain along with thunderstorms and lightning expected to occur in Mumbai within the next 2-3 hours.

Moderate to heavy rain is anticipated in South Mumbai, Panvel, and Navi Mumbai over the coming 1-2 hours. The Central line can expect some light to moderate rainfall, while there is a possibility of scattered showers on the Western line.

Many took to social media to post the pictures and videos of the unanticipated showers. Parts of South Mumbai, including Nariman Point, Cuff Parade, CSMT, Churchgate, witnessed showers.

Social media users residing in different areas of the city also shared observations of overcast skies and the imminent arrival of rain on Wednesday evening.

Heavy traffic congestion was reported in the CSMT junction area, spanning from Crawford Market to Mantralay and Nariman Point. Traffic police are manually controlling signals, but the situation remains chaotic. Vehicles are stranded at all intersections due to manual signaling, with the Mantralay and CSMT junctions particularly affected.

Possibility of rains over the next two days

Meteorologists have forecasted the possibility of rain and thunderstorms in the Central, Western, and Eastern Suburbs of Mumbai over the next 48 hours.

The financial hub, grappling with deteriorating air quality in recent days, is expected to enjoy relatively cleaner air following the rain showers.
