MUMBAI: The city did not receive much rain on Wednesday but the catchment areas, where the lakes supplying water to Mumbai are situated, received a good spell of showers, making up for water stock of another 12-13 days. Expecting monsoon to be picking up, weather officials have also forecast heavy rain on Thursday and Friday owing to depression forming in the east.

Following downpour in the catchment areas, the seven reservoirs supply drinking water have collected around two weeks of stock in one day. In the past 24 hours, Modak Sagar has recorded 37.4mm rainfall, Tansa 35.6mm, Vihar 18.20mm, Upper Vaitarna 44mm, Bhatsa 73mm and Middle Vaitarna 16.2mm. From 2.51 lakh million litres on Tuesday, the total stock in the seven lakes has increased by a 45,000 million litres to a total of 2.96 lakh million litre. This amount is sufficient to supply water to the city for around 82 days.

"Heavy rainfall in the catchment areas is a positive sign. In fact, the interior areas of Maharashtra, too, have been getting good rain. We are looking at southwest monsoon getting vigorous over central Maharashtra and Konkan in the next two days due to a depression that is forming there," said V K Rajeev, director of the regional meteorological centre in Mumbai.

The IMD has also issued a warning to fishermen, advising them not to go out to the high seas in the next 24 hours, as strong winds blowing at a speed of 45-50 km per hour are predicted. The city and the suburbs have not received much rain since the beginning of the week. In the last 24 hours, Colaba has recorded 6.8mm rainfall and Santa Cruz 10mm. storing,lakes supplying water to Mumbai
