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

The IMD on Saturday said that the island city, eastern suburbs, and western suburbs recorded 8.01 mm, 2.05 mm and 2.87 mm rain, respectively, in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 3.43 metres is expected at 0406 hours in Mumbai today. Also, a low tide of 1.35 metres is likely to occur at 2116 hours today.
