A vortex has culminated from the UAC, inland of Mumbai, due East. Not very strong, but still pouring rains in Mumbai. Worst affected is the South/Central areas.

I expect the vortex to fizzle out very soon, say by late night.

Heavy downpours are lashing South/Central Mumbai since the late morning, more so after 1 pm. . Some areas like Worli (45 mm) and Haji Ali areas are lashed by very heavy rains. Road flooding seen at Grant Road, Race course area and some parts of Worli. Byculla and Mumbai Central areas see some flooding due to very heavy showers.
Some really very heavy rains are measured at Colaba and Girgaum areas in South Mumbai.
But areas North of Bandra, have not seen much rain, in fact very much less in comparison to the areas south of it.

Rainfall is sparse in the far flung Northern suburbs.

Next report with rain amounts and situation at 8.30 pm
