Mumbai, Jun 25: Rains continued to lash Mumbai for the third consecutive day today, slightly disrupting suburban train services, even as the Met department predicted heavy showers over the next two days in Mumbai, Konkan and Goa region.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also issued a warning to fishermen not to venture into the sea in the wake of forecast.

"This good and sustained spell of rain is thanks to the offshore trough formed over the Arabian Sea off Gujarat coast. There is also an upper air cyclonic circulation developing over south of Gujarat and north Konkan," IMD Mumbai director V K Rajeev said.

Yesterday, the Colaba and Santa Cruz observatories in Mumbai recorded a rainfall of 26.8 mm and 50 mm respectively. The continuous downpour has affected the movement of local trains to some extent, as they are seen running at least 15 minutes behind their normal schedule, although no train cancellations have been reported so far.

However, the downpour has not caused any major flight delays or cancellations. The incessant rains have brought down the temperature to an extent, with Colaba recording a minimum temperature of 25.8 degrees Celsius and Santa Cruz 24.2 degrees Celsius.
