Mumbai IMD official Sushma Nair said, “Earlier, when the red alert was declared for the city, there was a low-pressure area that was going to cause heavy rainfall, but it really moved ahead fast, resulting in less rain. However, all synoptic conditions point to heavy rainfall, so the monsoon could pick up at any time.”
