Mumbai Reaches 100" Mark:
Mumbai Colaba and S'Cruz, both have reached the 100" mark, for this year's rainfall.
Within a few hours between them , both the official IMD stations in Mumbai touched the 2500 mms ( 100" ) mark, on 18th. August.
I have no records or data to verify this, but I feel this could be the earliest date ever, for Mumbai to touch 2500 mms.
As on 19th. morning, Colaba totalled 2553 mms, and S'cruz 2582 mms.
On Wednesday, Colaba recieved 51 mms and S'Cruz 90 mms. against the "vagaries estimate of 55 mms (average).
This also means, both stations are above their individual annual quota.
