The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Wednesday said that moderate rainfall is likely in Mumbai.

IMD in its 24-hour forecast has predicted moderate rainfall in city and suburbs with the possibility of heavy rainfall at isolated places.

The IMD on Wednesday said that the island city, eastern suburbs, and western suburbs recorded 30.74 mm, 64.97 mm and 64.05 mm rain, respectively, in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.56 metres is expected at 12.48 pm in Mumbai today. Also, a low tide of 0.72 metres is likely to occur at 6.52 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.

The IMD on Sunday had said that several parts over south, west and north India are likely to receive heavy rainfall during the next three days with the revival of the Southwest Monsoon.

It said enhanced rainfall activity with fairly widespread and isolated heavy to very heavy rains is very likely over Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala the during next three days and reduce in intensity and distribution thereafter.

North Marathawada, north madhya Maharashtra, north Konkan, Gujarat Region is likely to receive rainfall during September 7-9. Isolated extremely heavy falls are also likely over north Konkan during September 7-8, central Maharashtra and Gujarat Region on September 8 and Telangana on September 7.
