Southwest Monsoon has reached some parts of Maharashtra and it continues to give rains over a few regions of the state. Though, in comparison with the day before rains, the intensity of rainfall has reduced on the past day.
The reason for this reduction in rains is due to the weakening of the offshore trough which was extending from Konkan to Kerala coast. As of now, the trough has shifted south and is running from Goa coast to coastal Kerala.
Due to its shift, rains reduced over North Konkan, North Madhya Maharashtra and Vidarbha, however, South Konkan continued to get good showers.
Within the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Monday, Vengurla recorded 29 mm of rains, Mahabaleshwar 20 mm, Bramhapuri 11 mm, Washim 6 mm, Chandrapur 6 mm, Matheran 5 mm, Gondia 4 mm, Alibag 1 mm, Mumbai 1 mm and Aurangabad recorded 0.3 mm of light spells.
