The easterly wave has brought a good amounts of rains in many areas of Tamil Nadu, ranging from 3-12 cms. It being fairly active, is expected to bring rains to Tamil Nadu, south Karnatak on Wednessday, and the rain tapering off by Thursday night in these regions. But the system will move west, and Kerala should get the effect of this on Thursday. Jim (Accuweather) feels the system has to be watched as it moves into the Arabian Sea. This may well be the last wet spell of the season for south India.

But after crossing into the Arabian Sea, it will have pushed some moisture northwards. With the help of a weak "vortex", I think some small amounts ,( upto 10 mm) of rain can be expected along the Western Ghats areas of Maharashtra. So, Goa, Pune and Satara districts may get rain on Friday and Saturday. Mumbai may be cloudy on Friday/Saturday (meaning rise in temperatures).

In the north, a weak W.D. is expected to bring some snow in the hills. Cold wave prevails as of today in the region, with Srinagar at -5.4c, Amritsar at 0.6 c, and Delhi at 4.3, Jaipur at 3.8c yesterday. Mt. Abu was 0c two days back, Leh was at -14 c.
