Mumbaikars woke up to cloudy skies on Thursday morning. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its 24-hour forecast has predicted light to moderate rainfall in the city and suburbs today.
“One or two spells of light to moderate rain in city and suburbs,” IMD said on Thursday. The IMD said the island city, eastern suburbs, and western suburbs recorded 1.32 mm, 2.55 mm and 3.20 mm rain, respectively, in the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.77 metres is expected at 11.45 am and another high tide of 4.13 is expected at 11.38 pm in Mumbai today. Also, a low tide of 1.69 metres is likely to occur at 5.46 pm today.
When there is a high tide during the rainy season, it becomes difficult for the flooded water to recede. Low tide helps floodwaters in the city to find an outlet to enter the seas.
Meanwhile, IMD's Santacruz observatory on Thursday recorded the maximum temperature at 32.9 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 32.6 degrees Celsius. The Santacruz observatory in the western suburbs recorded a minimum temperature of 26.4 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a minimum temperature of 26.5 degrees Celsius.
The IMD on Thursday predicted thunderstorms with light to moderate rains in Delhi and parts of Uttar Pradesh.
"Thunderstorm with light to moderate intensity rain would occur over Isolated places of Northeast, East Delhi, Indrapuram, Pilkhua, Chapraula, Dadri, Khurja, Khair, Jattari (U.P.) and adjoining areas during next 2 hours," IMD tweeted.
However, parts of Uttar Pradesh are likely to experience moderate to heavy intensity rainfall during the next two hours. "Thunderstorm with moderate to heavy intensity rain would occur over Modinagar, Pilkhua, Hapur, Khurja, Jattari, Khekra, Bagpat (U.P.) and adjoining areas during next 2 hours," the IMD said in another tweet.
