Hefty Mumbai rains have taken a backseat in Mumbai and only short spells of showers have been making an appearance over the commercial capital. In fact, in the past 24 hours as well only light to moderate showers have been reported over Mumbai.
Other parts of Konkan and Maharashtra have also seen a similar trend with rainfall activity being on the light to moderate side itself. During the last 24 hours from 8:30 am yesterday, it was only Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra that saw heavy rains of 81 mm. Thane recorded 16 mm, Santa Cruz in Mumbai 14 mm, Colaba in Mumbai 6 mm with similar figures recorded along the coastline.
Now, coming to the weather forecast for Mumbai, one can expect on and off light to moderate showers over Mumbai until the end of July. One odd spell of heavy showers cannot be ruled out. Other parts of Konkan including Dahanu, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg will see light to moderate showers with isolated heavy spells.
These rains could spill on the other side of the Ghats as well and some rainfall activity is expected over Sangli, Satara, Kolhapur, Sholapur as well.
Whenever a system forms in Bay of Bengal, the Monsoon surge activates along the West Coast resulting in heavy rains in Konkan etc. However, this system is following more of a northerly track along the Indo Gangetic Plains, thus, rains in West Coast will not be as heavy but some rainfall activity is expected.
