Rains will pick up pace over entire Maharashtra between September 20 and 22 and enhanced rainfall activities would be seen in all four meteorological divisions.
Although with reduced intensity, Konkan and Goa and parts of Marathwada managed to receive good rains during the last 24 hours. A similar condition is likely, wherein moderate spells would lash parts of Konkan and Goa for the next 24 hours. Similarly, a few good spells would be seen over Marathwada and Vidarbha for the next two days.
In a span of 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Sunday, Ratnagiri has recorded 39 mm of rainfall, followed by Thane 31 mm, Mahabaleshwar 27 mm, Alibag 25 mm and Harnai 20 mm, Colaba 12 mm and Santa Cruz 9 mm.
Now, we expect Mumbai rains to go light but some localised moderate spells cannot be ruled out during the next 24 hours. However, heavy rains are not likely to revisit anytime soon.
According to our meteorologists, a Low-Pressure Area is likely to develop over the Bay of Bengal. This system would travel in west/southwest direction towards Maharashtra and we expect the intensity of rain to once again increase in many parts of the state between September 20 and 22.
During that time, the rainfall activities would increase significantly over Konkan and Goa. Mumbai may experience intense spells of rain, but these showers would not be a continuous affair and short breathers in between are likely. The low-lying areas might have to face waterlogging.
The meteorological divisions of Marathwada and Vidarbha would too experience enhanced rainfall activities during this episode. With this, it would be the last heavy spell over the state for this Monsoon season.
