Lightning map going blue just South of Mumbai, infact the Doppler clearly shows a small thunder cell moving ENE around the Lonavala area currently. More cells will soon pop up.By the way my friend reports of a lightning strike on his building yesterday night at Santacruz.
one can see cumulonimbus clouds on the eastern sky from borivali. all the time rising and the "anvil" expanding!!! the low visibility due to haze and smoke does not permit good photos though.
heavy thunder started over thane...
Yesterday our Barge GAL Constructor reports wind gusts of upto 52 knots, 50 miles from Mumbai at Neelam Field.

Guys, the Doppler radar shows a rain cloud just North of Matheran producing an incredible 80 - 88 mms of rain intensity per hour currently (although it may not last for an hour)!! I think this is going to be a storm like yesterday today as well in Mumbai, may start an hour early. Andheri area is already completely overcast at this point.
