The well marked low pressure now positioned, almost stationary since last report, at 17.4N and 71.9E, some 180 kms SW of Mumbai.
Likely to move NW and become a depression.

As Emkay points out, this remnant system pured heavy rains resulting in landslides near Karwar. BTW Karwar recorded 207 mms, Canacona 160 mms, Harnai 82 mms and Panjim 67 mms of rain in 24 hrs up to 8.30 today morning.

Mumbai existing forecast posted on Monday remains valid.

hi rajesh jst wanted to know how much rain can panvel receive from the remnants of jal?

rajesh said...

I think for Panvel,I would hold on to the Mumbai forecast that has been put up on the Mumbai Weather page.
Panvel should also get around 5-10 mms of rain as Mumbai.

aso rajesh i want to ask u why panvel receives usually more rainfall than mumbai?is it becoz of its proximity to matheran?wen u reported of some 4 cm in matheran ..tht day panvel also received nearly 3cm in the form of heavy thundershowers

nd 1 more thing i want to ask u is tht"is ther any chance of the forming depression in the east central arabian sea straying towards mumbai....betraying saurashtra,,,why the gujarat coast specially the saurashtra part is a favourite haunt of cyclones?recently icame across ur blog nd loved ur blog!!!!!!!!!!!

Junaid, thanks for the kind words and encouragement.
I'm no expert, but, like i mentioned a few blogs back, normally thunder clouds from the matheran/lonavala region tend to drift east. and many a times precipitate over the panvel area, being very close.
and for the direction, this depression will not cross the west coast, nor Mumbai.
An UAC over saurashtra is forming to welcome the system !
