No relief from rains in Maharashtra, heavy rains forecast for the next 48 hours

Maharashtra weather

Even after the Monsoon has bid farewell to the country, the state of Maharashtra doesn’t seem quite satisfied with rains leaving the state so early. During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rains have occurred at many places over Maharashtra. While, Pune received 13 mm of rains, Dahanu 1 mm, Santa Cruz 3 mm, Nashik 1 mm, Ratnagiri 11 mm and Aurangabad recorded 8 mm rains during the last 21 hours. Also, light rains were witnessed over Akola.

Weathermen at Skymet expect these rain activities to continue over Maharashtra for the next many days. However, heavy rains have been forecast for today and tomorrow only over South Konkan and Goa and adjoining South Madhya Maharashtra. Moderate rains are expected over southern parts of the state. Thereafter, the rain intensity will decrease.

According to meteorologists, the reason behind these rains is a Well Marked Low Pressure Area over East-central Arabian Sea. The Well Marked Low Pressure Area will hover around this area until October 24. Thereafter it may start recurving towards Northwest and rain activities will decrease further.

Rains might once again increase October 26 onward and it might pour over Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada and parts of Konkan and Goa. Mumbai might also receive rains during this period. Rain intensity will be more over cities like Pune, Nashik, Ahmedabad, Ahmednagar, Aurangabad, Parbhani, Sangli, Satara and Kohlapur. During that time the rain intensity will be comparatively less and only some light to moderate rains will be seen. These on and off rain activities are expected to continue until October 30.

So, it can be said that the entire October is going to turn out rainy for Maharashtra. These October rains are quite unusual as normally Maharashtra doesn’t receive much rains in the month of October and post-Monsoon rains are quite rare.
