Defying odds, UAC lingers on and expands on Saturday night off the west coast. Much against expectations !
strengthening the trough and precipitating very heavy rain on Saturday night in and around the Konkan.
Colaba recorded 147 mms in the night, and S'Cruz 120 mms. Both figures are for 8.30 pm Satrurday to 8.30 am Sunday.
And seems the vortex is still maintained at -30 as on noon Sunday... Analysis done on personal level indicates creation of wind shear, within a short span of 6 hrs, of upto 40 knts , created unstability in the atmosphere. This has occured from south Gujarat to Karnataka coast. Promising heavy rains all along with very heavy falls...next 6 hrs.

Ganesh:I would prefer to verify the Talasari 50 cms first..even though it is in IMD report.
Highest ever for month of July in S'Cruz is 1456 mms in 1965 and 1455 mms in 2005.
July record for Colaba is 1500 mms in 1907.
2011 July saw 1363 mms in S'Cruz and 1285 mms at Colaba.
Thanks Cmdr.Waiting Lonavala figures.
