Several parts in the PMC area including, Panvel, Kalamboli and Kamothe receive a fair share of intermittent rains in the last two days.
The skies were filled with lightening, a little bit of thunder and moderate rain around at 3.00 am (Wee hours of Wednesday morning).
Wednesday morning saw dark clouds hovering over Kharghar with light showers here and there but during the evening the rains came in good flow and continued for a long time.
Though the streets were empty and all the picnic spots like Kharghar waterfalls and driving range waterfalls enjoyed their own company, the pleasant weather came in as a pleasant surprise to residents who have been indoors owing to the ongoing pandemic.
Some people could be seen going out for a quick walk and a much needed change as it poured.
