Despite the Southwest Monsoon having withdrawn from the West Rajasthan region on Thursday, the city of Mumbai is set for a deluge and that this will continue for as long as 2 full days. The spell in Mumbai forecast by IMD is for “very heavy rainfall”. This will also include areas of Central Maharashtra. Mumbai is already receiving heavy rainfall from early Thursday morning. West Rajasthan is always the first area in India from where withdrawals by rains happen, according to IMD. However, these are supposed to happen by Sept 1 and this year, it got quite late.
