sridhar: I think, its my view, that we could get uniform widespread rain if it comes from a system, i mean direct impact. There the entire region would get rain almost uniformly, like if a depression comes into Mumbai..still of course there could be little variation,not so much though.Or, if there is uniform flow of winds across the coast towards a strong system.
This is a belt of rain, un- uniformly formed, and we can call it "out of turn", so distribution will be vastly uneven.
And distance between north and south Mumbai is 40 kms, enough to create variations in precipitation.
If we review the rainfall last night: Palghar 209 mms, Colaba 163 mms, Uran 154 mms, Surat 132 mms and Santa cruz 117 mms. Thats for N.Konkan.
Another low could form in the Bay, this time off the Orissa/W,Bengal coast by the 12th.We will have to watch and wait to know its track and intensity.
