The state of Maharashtra has been observing enhanced rainfall activities for the last many days now. In fact, the month of October that doesn’t see much rains has rather been an exception in terms of weather activities for the state.
The reason for such good amounts of rainfall can be attributed to the gradual intensification of the weather system.
Initially, a Cyclonic Circulation was persisting over the Southeast Arabian Sea. This system gradually intensified into a Low-Pressure Area and later into a Well Marked Low-Pressure Area while moving northeastwards towards the Maharashtra Coast.
The movement of this system has given heavy rain and thundershower activities over the southern districts such as Sangli, Satara, Kolhapur, while good rains were observed over Solapur recently. The parched region of Marathwada too witnessed significant showers, while the intensity was moderate over the districts of Konkan and Goa.
According to Skymet Weather, the meteorological division of Madhya Maharashtra would continue to get good rain and thundershowers for the next two to three days. A similar condition is likely over parts of Vidarbha as well.
By October 24, rains would vacate most parts of Maharashtra and remain confined only to South Madhya Maharashtra.
Another weather system is expected to develop over Coastal Karnataka which would again increase the rainfall activities in South Konkan and Goa, parts of Vidarbha and South Marathwada around October 27. Thus, rains are likely to continue for the remaining days of October.
