The India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its 24-hour forecast has predicted light to moderate rain in the city and suburbs on Saturday.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.85 metre expected at 1323 hours in Mumbai today. Also, a low tide of 1.53 metres is likely to occur at 1934 hours today.

When there is a high tide during the rainy season, flooded water in the city finds it difficult to get into the seas. Low tide will help the floodwaters in the city to find an outlet to enter into the seas.

Meanwhile, the national capital recorded a minimum temperature of 25.6 degrees Celsius, three notches below the season's average, on Saturday morning, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.

According to MeT officials, the maximum temperature likely to settle around 39 degrees Celsius.

The weatherman forecasts generally cloudy sky with light rain or drizzle during the day.

The relative humidity was recorded at 68 per cent.

The maximum temperature on Friday settled at 40.1 degrees Celsius, three notches above the normal.

Several parts of Delhi-NCR witnessed thunderstorms with heavy flow of winds on Friday evening, as was predicted by the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

As per IMD forecast, light rain is also predicted on Saturday, while the air quality of Delhi is likely to remain at the moderate category for the next two days.

According to the IMD, PM10 will be the predominant pollutant owing to strong surface winds favourable for raising dust concentration locally and transportation of dust from the arid regions.

"The air quality is likely to improve marginally but remain in moderate to a satisfactory category on June 26 and 27. The outlook for the subsequent five days - the air quality is likely to remain largely in the satisfactory to the moderate category in Delhi," the IMD said in a statement
