The Monsoon rains also remained moderate to heavy in intensity over Mumbai and its suburbs during the same period.

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.
