Upcoming Low Pressure Area in the Arabian sea to give good showers in Mumbai, Coastal Karnataka, Konkan, Goa and Alibag

Low Pressure Area in Arabian Sea

The Bay of Bengal, as well as the Arabian Sea, particularly their southern parts, are the active basins for the Northeast Monsoon rains. The frequent passage of systems like feeble Cyclonic Circulation keeps the activity for the Northeast Monsoon on over the southern peninsula.

A very little percentage of systems turn into a storm otherwise they keep moving in the form of a Cyclonic Circulation and a Low-Pressure Area as well. However, the Cyclonic Circulations are seen in large numbers.

The Northeast Monsoon is supported by the weaker systems, while the stronger ones obstruct the rainfall pattern of the Northeast Monsoon.

The continuous weaker systems keep the weather activity on over the southern peninsula.

Presently, a Cyclonic Circulation is over the Lakshadweep and its adjoining areas which are likely to become more marked in the next 24 hours. The system will stay over the same region and become more marked and can be seen as a Low-Pressure Area in the subsequent 24 hours.

There is a possibility that the system may further shift west/northwestward and will be away from the coast around October 18. During this time the system is likely to expand and cover large regions. But will remain mainly over the sea. All this while the rain activity will be seen over Kerala and Coastal Karnataka.

With the expansion, we may expect a feeble system in the form of a Cyclonic Circulation which will be an offshoot of this low-Pressure Area and will be marked off Karnataka coast. It will shift along the coast mainly remaining in the sea and will give moderate showers over Konkan including Mumbai, Goa, Coastal Karnataka.

Thus, good rains are ahead between October 19 and October 20 and heavy rains are likely to remain confined to the sea area only. Alibag, Ratnagiri, Palghar all these places are very likely to see moderate showers during this period.

The withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon doesn’t mean the total cessation of rainfall activities. A similar thing will be seen over Konkan and Goa as well. Thus, the upcoming Low-Pressure Area is all set to give rains over Konkan, Mumbai, Goa and Coastal Karnataka.
