Mumbai Rains: Maximum city is all set to experience another nightmarish experience due to the monsoon and Mumbaikars are a worried lot as clouds gather overhead promising to pummel the populace again. The city of Mumbai on Thursday recorded temperature higher than last year’s highest October temperature at 34.7 degrees Celsius with mercury two to three degrees above normal. On Friday, the weather department stated that Mumbai is likely to experience a spell or two of rain or thundershowers, according to a report by the Indian Express. The department further said that similar weather is expected to continue till Monday in the city, as Monsoon has still not bid adieu to the city. According to apprehensive reactions of several people on social media, the heavy downpour has changed the weather to pitch dark as a result the visibility in the city has decreased.
