However, the moderate rain still continues in the city and its adjoining area for last one week.

IMD has tweeted “With the development of the low-pressure area over Bay, this Saturday night and Sunday, Mumbai is very likely to get intense heavy rainfall.”

A look at the past rain statistics shows that Mumbai received twice the rain it recorded in July 2016 in just 28 days of July this year.

As of now airport operations in Mumbai running normally, but heavy rain may hamper the arrivals and departures.
