The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy rainfall in Mumbai in the next 24 hours and has advised fishermen against venturing into the sea.

Mumbai city and its adjoining areas are experiencing rainfall from the last 48 hours while it recorded over 64 mm in the last 24 hours.

However, normal life has not much been affected by rainfall as there has been no major cases of water logging or traffic jam and local trains are running more or less on time.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials claimed that there has been no case of tree felling or landslide during the last 12 hours.

The incessant rains have brought down the temperature to an extent, with Colaba recording a minimum temperature of 25.8 degrees Celsius and Santa Cruz 24.2 degrees Celsius.
