You can expect heavy downpour for another two days, promise weathermen. On Wednesday, Colaba recorded 40 mm of rainfall while Santacruz received 27 mm.

Both the minimum and maximum temperature in the island city dropped by one degree because of intermittent showers. The maximum temperature at Colaba dropped to 26.5 degree Celsius while the minimum temperature fell from 25.8 to 24.2 degree Celsius, the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Mumbai, said.

The suburbs did not see a drop in temperature because it received less rainfall as compared to the island city.

With one more month to go, the city has already received more than the season’s average rainfall, which is 2,294 mm from June 1 to September 30. Until Wednesday, Mumbai had recorded 2,497 mm of rainfall.

"Excess is always good for a city struck by water crisis," said R.V. Sharma, deputy director general, IMD, western region.
