Southwest Monsoon had splashed the West Coast with double and three digit rain falls with its arrival and continued pouring good rains over the West Coast of the country. However, since last one-week rain intensity over entire West Coast has decreased.
But isolated places like Mahabaleshwar and Harnai in Konkan and Goa region have been receiving on and off heavy rains. The reason for the significant decrease in rains can be attributed to the weakening of the off shore trough which was running from South Gujarat to Coastal Karnataka.
Now we do not expect this off shore trough to intensify anytime soon. Therefore subdued rainfall activities will continue over the entire West Coast including Konkan and Goa, Coastal Karnataka and Kerala. The chances of revival are very less for at least one week.
In last 24 hours from 8.30 am on Wednesday places along the West Coast recorded very light rains. Only Mahabaleshwar witnessed 31 mm of rain, Madikeri 16 mm, Colaba Observatory in Mumbai 11 mm, Cannur 9 mm, Alappuzha 10 mm, Mangalore 6.7 mm, Goa and Cochin 6 mm, Vengurla and Alibag 4 mm. At present due to fewer rains, the weather has become warm and humid as the air holds moisture.
