Moderate to heavy rains have been lashing parts of Konkan and Goa as well as Madhya Maharashtra since the last 24 hours. While the other two meteorological divisions such as Vidarbha and Marathwada observed light to moderate rains.
According to the data available with Skymet, Mahabaleshwar has recorded 136 mm of rainfall, followed by Matheran 71 mm, Nashik 66 mm and Colaba (Mumbai) 54 mm of rainfall, in the last 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Sunday.
Rains have not taken rest since last night, in fact, Mumbai rains took vigorous turn on Monday morning. The reason for ongoing rains can be attributed to the active off-shore trough along Konkan and Goa. Moreover, a Cyclonic Circulation is marked over South Gujarat.
Due to the combined effect of these systems, moderate showers with heavy spells in between will continue in Konkan and Goa for at least next two to three days. Thereafter, rain will taper over the region.
Meanwhile, the intensity of rain will remain mainly light in Vidarbha and Marathwada, but the chances of a few moderate spells cannot be ruled out. In the case of Madhya Maharashtra, light to moderate showers will continue here.
Meanwhile, there are chances that the city of Mumbai may receive moderate spells of rain along with one or two heavy spells during the next 48 hours, however, these heavy spells will last only for two to three hours.
Further June 11 onward, we expect a significant decrease in rainfall activities over Vidarbha, Marathwada and Madhya Maharashtra. Similarly, the intensity of rain will go down over Konkan and Goa, however, a few moderate spells may continue.
By this time, the rain intensity over Mumbai will decrease significantly, however, the city may witness short spells of occasional intense rains. Overall, we can say that good rains going over parts of Maharashtra will taper after July 10.
