India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued forecast of intermittent rains, on Wednesday.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Deputy Municipal Commissioner Sudhir Naik said that no cyclonic warning has been issued, as of now.

Earlier, the Meteorological Department has alerted that high tide is expected on Wednesday afternoon at 12 .03 p.m. of 4 .5 mm and had also warned for heavy rainfall in the next 24 hours.

Mumbai's lifeline local trains services were delayed for 15 to 20 minutes due to the heavy downpour.

Last evening, the flight operations at the Mumbai Airport were suspended for nearly half an hour, due to poor visibility and water logging on the runway.

Reportedly, Mumbai recorded its second highest rain in September in a span of 12 hours, on Tuesday.

On August 29, Mumbai recorded 297 .6 mm rain in nine hours 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p .m ., higher than any 24-hour rain in August in a decade which had brought the city to a halt, as commuters waded through chest-deep waters.
