Mumbaikars woke up to cloudy skies but got some respite from rains on Tuesday morning. However, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its 24-hour forecast has predicted light to moderate rain or thundershowers in the city and suburbs.
The IMD said the island city, eastern suburbs and western suburbs recorded 0.96 mm, 3.48 mm and 2.77 mm rain, respectively, in the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.15 metres is expected at 3.30 pm in Mumbai today. Also, a low tide of 1.97 metres is likely to occur at 9.30 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.
IMD's Santacruz observatory on Tuesday recorded the maximum temperature at 33.6 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 33 degrees Celsius. The Santacruz observatory in the western suburbs recorded a minimum temperature of 27.6 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a minimum temperature of 27.5 degrees Celsius.
