Weather officials said that low level clouding that was observed led to the showers. However, they said it was more of a local phenomenon owing to moisture incursion. “There was moisture incursion with winds being westerly to southwesterly. This is a highly localised phenomenon. Something that happens in this season. Daytime heating, availability of moisture so condensation can take place and we get rain,” said a official adding that this couldn’t be called the pre-monsoon showers yet.
IMD in a forecast for next 24 hours said that partly cloudy skies can be expected by evenings while minimum & maximum temperatures expected to be around 34 degrees & 27 degrees respectively.
Day temperatures recorded by the IMD Colaba & Santacruz observatory on Saturday was 33.9 degrees & 34.4 degrees respectively.
