Monsoon rains to taper in Maharashtra, dry weather to set in July 14 onward

July 12, 2019 12:27 PM |

Heavy Monsoon showers

Moderate to heavy rains continued over Konkan and Goa, wherein South Konkan, observed heavy rains in the last 24 hours. The Monsoon rains also remained moderate to heavy in intensity over Mumbai and its suburbs during the same period. These showers were spread throughout the day, hence have not resulted in any major day to day life disruption. Also, no severe water-logging was reported.

Talking about the rainfall data, Vengurla has recorded 156 mm of rainfall, followed by Mahabaleshwar 121 mm, Harnai 85 mm, Colaba (Mumbai) 58 mm, Ratnagiri 55 mm, Matheran 38 mm, Parbhani 27 mm and Santa Cruz (Mumbai) 25 mm, in the last 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Madhya Maharashtra and parts of Marathwada have recorded scattered rains, wherein places like Nashik, Pune, Kolhapur, and Sangli recorded light to moderate showers. The region of Vidarbha also received isolated rains in places like Akola and Chandrapur. A few spells of rain lashed Aurangabad and Parbhani as well.

According to Skymet, despite a decrease in rainfall activity, many parts of the state are observing on and off rains and thundershowers. However, as the offshore Trough, which was running via Maharashtra Coast has now weakened and has shifted further south across Karnataka and Kerala due to which the intensity of rain would decrease further. Konkan and Goa, however, may continue to observe light to moderate rains for the next 24 to 48 hours.

By July 14, rains will vacate most parts of the state and weather would remain dry until July 17. The dry weather condition will once again result in rainfall deficiency mounting in Vidarbha and Marathwada. The rain surplus in Konkan and Goa, as well as Madhya Maharashtra, may take a hit.
