On Tuesday, Mumbai and nearby areas woke up to a cloudy morning and light showers for the second consecutive day.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its 24-hour forecast has predicted a partly cloudy sky with the possibility of light to moderate rainfall and thundershowers for today.

Meanwhile, a high tide of 4.03 metres is expected at 11 am in Mumbai today. Also, a low tide of 2.02 metres is likely to occur at 4.57 pm today.

A high tide of 3.56 metres is also expected at 10.50 pm today and a low tide of 4.54 am metres at 4.54 am on Wednesday.

When there is a high tide during the rainy season, flooded water in the city find 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, IMD's Santacruz observatory on Tuesday recorded the maximum temperature at 33.5 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a maximum temperature of 32.2 degrees Celsius. The Santacruz observatory in the western suburbs recorded a minimum temperature of 25.5 degrees Celsius, while the Colaba observatory recorded a minimum temperature of 25.6 degrees Celsius.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday instructed all agencies to be ready and vigilant after the India Meteorological Department (IMD) warned of four days of heavy rains in all districts of Konkan, including Mumbai.

According to the Chief Minister's Office, all the districts in the Konkan, including the Mumbai metropolitan area, have been warned of heavy rains during the four days from June 9 to 12.
