Was very squally at Andheri around 7:30 pm, rains, thunder and lightning followed (the usual stuff these days), there was moderately heavy rains around 8:00 pm till 9:00 pm then it subsided, things again picked up around 10 pm, the rain continues with a good intensity even now @ 11 pm.

Cloud top temperatures showed -50 degree celcius in North Maharashtra and around -40 degree celcius around Mumbai.

Hail in Goa? That would really take the cake, but then as we have seen anything is possible these days so guess no surprises.

One observation - as usual IMD is super silent on what's happening along the West coast and also NW India (Delhi had rains and so did places in Rajasthan). No analysis, no statements, it's business as usual folks what's the fuss about?

nt,
S'Cruz had 4 mms till 8.30 pm. Here at my place it was 12 mms till 10.30, thats when it has stopped.
regarding the reporting ?!?! At least Vagaries is keeping all posted on the developments and the situation,as afr as possible fronews from even small cities, like ur information, and the estimated forecast.

Rajesh, 'Vagaries' is doing a fantastic job, no doubt, hence so many of us go through the blog regularly and post our comments. As mentioned earlier too in my comments the only source of analysis we get for weather around Mumbai is 'Vagaries'. I am a bit surprised though with IMD and it's reporting. They do a very transactional reporting job (figures for rains will be put up tomorrow with some standard forecast)

Awaiting your forecast for Mumbai for the next couple of days :-) My estimate is that Santacruz will touch around 15 - 20 mms till 8:30 am tomorrow, the rains continue here with a decent frequency at 11:16 pm
