The retreating SWM was perticularly violent on Tuesday in South Maharashtra regions. Some severe thunderstorms were witnessed in the Southern Mah. areas, with Pune measuring 105 mms in an evening spell. Pashan notched up 81 mms, while Chinchwad saw 37 mms of rain.

Some thundercells achieved an 18 km altititude over the ghats south of Mumbai, and took a "peek" over Mumbai. With some lightning seen in the SE skies, Colaba got 1 mm of rain in its rain guage. Did not really expect much in Mumbai to happen, and Wednesday a-is as sultry and hot as expected.

Well, this development is in line with vagaries' forecast, and would expect the SWM to move completely out of S. Mah. in the next 2 days. Thundershowers would be of the order in S.Mah for another 2 days, and subsequently, the SWM retreat would be completet from Karnataka too.

The trough in South India persisit across the Southern states of Karnataka, T.N. thru Kerala into the Arabian Sea.
