Potential cyclone in Bay of Bengal has revived Monsoon 2018 over the entire country and Maharashtra is also one of the beneficiaries.

According to the weathermen at Skymet Weather, a deep depression has formed over east central parts of Bay of Bengal. This weather system is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm and travel in the west-northwest direction. Moreover there is an expectation of the system to cross the coast of Odisha by midnight.

On account of this, Vidarbha and North Madhya Maharashtra are expected to be whipped by heavy to very heavy showers till September 22. Simultaneously, there are prospects of Marathwada to get few good spells of rain along with rise in the rainfall intensity over Konkan & Goa and rest of Madhya Maharashtra wherein few moderate spells are possible.

The weather system is likely to move away by September 23 and as a result by September 24, the intensity of showers will reduce significantly over Maharashtra. However, isolated activities may persist thereafter too.

We presume that by the end of this rainy episode, the rain deficiency of Marathwada may get better to some extent. On the contrary, from the agricultural perspective, these upcoming showers are unfavorable for the crops.

Barring Marathwada, all other regions of Maharashtra have seen good rains till now. Marathwada has acquired deficit rains to the tune of 16%. Whereas Konkan & Goa attained surplus rains by a mere 1%. Vidarbha and Madhya Maharashtra saw normal rains but with a meager of 10% and 4%, respectively.
