As per Skymet Weather, the offshore trough will extend from Gujarat coast to North Konkan and will remain active. This active offshore trough along the West Coast will further activate the Monsoon Surge and will stay active over the Konkan & Goa Coast. Thus, Monsoon will once again become active over the state capital resulting in good rains.

The intensity of Monson over Mumbai can be made out of the fact that as against the monthly mean of 529.7 mm of rains, Mumbai has just recorded 51.9 mm of showers in the last 11 days. Although Mumbai has almost 15 days in hand to accomplish its monthly target, it is still a wait and a watch situation.
