Default Re: Mumbai Drive in Incessant Rains!

I would be driving to Mumbai from B'lore, morrow early morning. How's the scenario with incessant rains in North Karnataka and Maharashtra, especially Mumbai ? I plan to leave early, say 4 AM from B'lore and would like to reach Mumbai before sunset!

Please advise!

Rains as on yesterday noon weren't that bad in Mumbai as well but forecast says expect more rains over the the next 2 days.

Your worry should not be anywhere but Sion and beyond where rains may affect traffic inside the city. North KA till Pune or Panvel should not be an issue at all.

Have a safe trip!

Few of us drive that side on day after .

It was raining heavily in Mumbai last 5 days( I live here ) and learnt that its raining in Pune as well. Currently the situation is better in Mumbai as compared to yesterday. It was flooding everywhere. Since you are planning to reach Mumbai before sunset, there shouldn't be any problem. IMD had predicted heavy rainfall for next 48 hours in Mumbai but then the rains started subsiding

No incessant rains in Belgaum, same is the story with rest of North Karnataka.

A tad too late update to this thread Did a NH4 run in early June.

Onward was a Hosur-Shirur run, timed to cross into MH at night. And it worked! Clocked Kolhapur to Pune bypass in 2:45 hrs and 50 mins to cross Pune (got caught in some Metro construction for 5 mins). Few comments:

- MSRTC buses stop middle of nowhere, need to wary of that.
- Karad town has a huge jam at 2330 hrs.
- Attibele, Guialu, Taswade, Anewadi took 5-10 mins. Remaining were a breeze.
- Kamat, Dobbaspete was avoidable.

Started from Hosur at 1150 am, NICE Tumkur at 100 pm, 40 min in Kamat Dobaspete, 1 hr at Sugar n Spice Hubli, 20 min at Roti Ghar, Pune bypass at 140 am, Shirur 310am.

Return was a non-stop Shirdi-Madras run, start at 645am from Shirdi and ending at Home in Madras 710am next day. Pune bypass at 1220 pm, NICE Tumkur at 1230 am, Shoolagiri McD at 150am. Sai Park Inn 40 min, Sugar n Spice 40 min, BPCL COCO Chitradurga 20 min, 3 power naps 20-30 mins each between Bangalore and Madras.
