Snowfall in Garhwal Himalayas nearly a month ahead of schedule

Nearly a month ahead of schedule, the higher reaches of Garhwal Himalayas today received snowfall, sending the mercury plummeting in Chamoli and Rudraprayag districts.

The hills around Badrinath and Kedarnath temples have received snowfall while lower areas received rainfall forcing the people to take out their woollens.

Usually, the Garhwal Himalayas experience snowfall during October.

The rains yesterday in Mumbai were very erratic as reported by TOI in today's print edition. According to the article while it rained nearly 6 inches in Eastern suburbs that too for nearly 12 hours, it rained harldy half an inch around the Western suburbs and even lesser in South Mumbai.

What is causing these localised bursts in Mumbai? There does not appear to be any significant system around nor does the offshore trough look very active? Are these the first signs of Monsoon withdrawal from Mumbai?

Commenting on your inputs on the Mulund rains yesterday (Mumbai weather page)- Yesterday afternoon while driving towards Vashi, had felt the clouding in far distance to have a distinct brownish hue and also at very low altitude.
