On Tuesday, Meaningfull resurging of the off shore trough along the west coast was limited to S.Konkan and Coastal Karnataka. Precipitation along the Karnataka coast (Honavar 42 mms) penetrated inland resulting in much awaited rainfall in N.I.Karnataka on Tuesday evening. Bijapur, Bagalkot, Raichur (24 mms), and Bellary are receiving good rainfall while moderate rains are seen in Hubli, Gadag and surrounding regions.
Coastal rains from Kerala are also moving into the Nilgiri Districts of TN. West TN may see some rains next 2 days (mentioned in vagaries' forecast map of Monday, republished again below).
Coastal AP forecast remains as per Map.
In South Konkan, Ratnagiri is currently getting moderate rains, while Panjim guaged up 19 mms till 5.30pm Tuesday.
But, N.Konkan got nominal and scattered rainfall. Though heavy in few pockets, overall the day (Tuesday) saw thundershowers in a few places inland, and showers ranging from 5-25 mms in the day. Was expecting better rains in N.Konkan, including Mumbai Region on Tuesday/Wednesday.
Mumbai had some showers on Tuesday, with thunder heads towering in the Eastern sky. (Thunder is forecasted for Tuesday).Though the rainfall during the day was very less, SCruz getting 3.6 mms, Colaba 0.6 mms and vagaries station 4.0 mms till 8.30pm Tuesday. Thane town measured 8 mms in the period.
Mumbai still has another day or two, so the precipitation can improve.
With a weak MJO phase prevailing, it is difficult for any trough or vortex to get moisture and "feeding". The off shore trough stands and remains strengthened for the next 2 days, due to a "shrunk" monsoon axis.
No chance of Monsoon advancing beyond the current line soon.
