Mumbai: The Mumbai and Thane regions are likely to receive rainfall in the next two days, according to weather experts. The regions may witness light rain due to changes in weather precipitated by Cyclone Fani. The cyclone hit Puri along the Odisha coast at around 8am Friday, leaving three dead and affecting a thousand villages and 50 towns in the state.
According to Skymet Weather, a private weather forecasting agency, the indirect impact of Cyclone Fani has led to an overcast sky over parts of Vidarbha with mainly high and medium clouds appearing over the region since the past 48 hours. “A significant rise in humidity levels has also been observed. Moreover, due to strong south-westerly winds, temperatures have dropped by 2 to 4 degrees Celsius over parts of madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada,” read the Skymet Weather report.
A small trough is extending from the north Arabian Sea up to the central Arabian Sea at the lower levels. “Due to this system, light rain is expected in a few parts of north Konkan and Goa, including Mumbai, during the next 48 hours,” read the report. According to the weathermen, the sky will remain partly cloudy over Ratnagiri and Harnai.
