Mahabaleshwar Rains

Vigorous Monsoon conditions have battered Mahabaleshwar with torrential rains. The hill station, also known as Cherrapunji of Western Ghats, has been recording extremely heavy rains i.e. three-digit rainfall for last 11 consecutive days.

In fact, Mahabaleshwar has covered its monthly average rainfall in the first seven days of August only. From August 1 to August 7, the city has recorded 2043 mm of rains against the normal average of 1784 mm, surpassing its monthly average in just a week.

Not only this, since July 27, the hill town has recorded 3004 mm of rains.

However, such incessant rains are not very unusual for Mahabaleshwar. According to weathermen, whenever Monsoon is active to vigorous over the region, the hill station tends to see such extremely heavy rains for days together. For instance, Mahabaleshwar has recorded 4007 mm in August in 1900, while 2592 mm in 2016.

Moving further, it seems that incessant rains have refused to relent. With active Monsoon surge persisting, these three-digit rains would continue to lash Mahabaleshwar for at least next three days. Rains might not touch 300 mm-mark but would continue to be extremely heavy rains.

We might see rains easing out thereafter.
