After observing scathing humid conditions and very little monsoon activity, winds of change are promising good rains over the next few days over Mumbai and suburbs. Mostly moderate showers filled with an isolated heavy downpour looks to be in store for a week-long activity to start with.
The month of September has remained nearly silent and observed a few totally dry days. The high humidity of 60% or more throughout the day along with temperature jumping the threshold by 3-4 degrees has raised the discomfort level. All this is in the backdrop of September 2019, the rainiest of all time with a deluge of 1115.7 mm against a meager normal of 341 mm. This season Mumbai has recorded only 38mm of rainfall so far in September.
Mumbai has recorded a huge seasonal surplus of 1175mm so far which caters to any shortfall of September. However, conditions are building up for a prolonged spell of decent showers mitigating the weather woes of Mumbaikars. There are an offshore circulation and a trough along the Konkan coast energizing the upcoming rains. Additionally, a shear zone running East-West in the close proximity is positioned ideally to infuse more thrill to this long-awaited rainy spell. A wet weekend is very much awaiting to break the monotony of the dry spell.
