The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday in its 24-hour forecast for Mumbai has predicted a partly cloudy sky with the possibility of light rain in the city and suburbs.
Mumbai on Wednesday recorded its second-highest 24-hour rainfall in the month of December, as unseasonal showers returned after a brief hiatus.
Mumbai is expected to witness partly cloudy sky with few spells of rain or thundershowers throughout the week till Sunday.
Rain in November-December is not a usual feature in Maharashtra.
