An official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that light rains and drizzles were also reported in some districts like Sangli, Osmanabad and Kolhapur.
"In the month of May, such pre-monsoon thunder showers are quite usual," the official said.
"Suburban Chembur witnessed mild rainfall, though it did not hit the road traffic," an official from disaster management department of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.
However, the central and harbour lines of the Central Railway were affected by the unseasonal rains during the peak evening hours.
"Suburban trains stopped at Chembur on the harbour line and at Ghatkopar on the main corridor of Central Railway after technical snag in overhead equipment were reported in the evening. Our team of engineers swung into action and rectified it soon," CR's senior spokesperson A K Jain said.
Describing his experience, a commuter of central line said, "I took the 7.33 pm Kalyan local from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST). When the local reached Ghatkopar, it was raining and suddenly I heard few explosions in the train's overhead equipment and it stopped moving."
He, however, acknowledged that announcement system were in place and was rectified within time.
