The IMD has issued an orange alert in Thane, Palghar, Raigad, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg districts.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has predicted moderate rain in the city and suburbs with the possibility of heavy rainfall at isolated places.
"In view of the formation of a low-pressure area over north and adjoining central Bay of Bengal during the next 48 hours and other associated synoptic features, Maharashtra is very likely to experience an active rainfall spell during next 4-5 days," the IMD said, reported IndiaTV.
An orange alert means the authorities should "be prepared", while a yellow warning asks them to "be updated". According to IMD, rainfall from 64.5 mm to 115.5 mm is considered 'heavy rainfall', while rainfall between 115.6 mm and 204.4 mm is termed 'very heavy rainfall'.
