Mumbai is likely to witness a high tide on three consecutive days beginning Tuesday.
Coupled with rain, commuters may face a tough time because of waterlogging at chronic spots. The sea is expected to rise to 4.61m on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, the water level is expected to rise to 4.56m at 1.48pm.
Meanwhile, after moderate rain on Sunday, south Mumbai and the suburbs received less rainfall on Monday.
According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), south Mumbai received 30.2mm, compared to the suburbs that received 5.6mm between 8.30am and 5.30pm on Monday. Between 8.30am on Sunday and 8.30am on Monday, Colaba recorded heavy showers at 111.6mm and Santacruz received nearly 59.2mm rain.
The showers ensured the temperatures remained below normal, with day temperatures at Colaba and Santacruz at 28.1 degrees Celsius and 29.9 degrees Celsius respectively.
The minimum temperatures, too, dropped almost by three degrees below normal -- at 23.6 degrees Celsius in south Mumbai and 23.5 degrees Celsius in the suburbs.
South Mumbai recorded 92% humidity on Monday evening, while the humidity level at Santacruz dropped to 81%. “High moisture levels and westerly winds will continue to keep the humidity levels high,” said VK Rajeev, director, western region, IMD.
