The situation, as of now, is pretty grim for the city to surpass its monthly average with just 18 days left.
Heavy to extremely heavy rain and thundershowers are occurring over most parts of Coastal Maharashtra including Mumbai, wherein Monsoon has arrived over Pune. These rains can be credited to the off-shore trough that is running from Konkan and Goa to Kerala coast.
In fact few good spells were also observed over South Madhya Maharashtra; however Pune and attached areas remained more or less dry with rare light spells.
Now that Southwest Monsoon has arrived over Pune and adjoining areas including Mumbai, rainfall will continue over the region.
