Mumbai Special :
Well, its finally here ! After holding on to the hope of a Thursday revival, Mumbai got its heavy downpour from early morning.
As explained in Vagaries yesterday, there was some hope of the off shore trough strengthening off N.Konkan.
Yesterday's MSLP chart put up (for Mumbai region) clearly showed the trough forming only off S. Konkan and below. Having the "capability" to form further North was envisaged in Vagaries yesterday.
No, upper air charts do not indicate any UAC formation. Rains are purely a result of the much awaited (since Tuesday) off shore trough.(not localised).
However, rainfall throughout Mumbai has been very very erratic. Check these figures:
In the 24 hrs till 8.30 am Thursday, Colaba measured 21 mms, S'Cruz 75 mms, Vagaries 4 mms, Thane 145 mms, Panvel 2 mms, Vasai 44 mms.
Since 8.30 am till 11.30am (Thursday), Dadar has received 50 mms, while Goregaon area it seems has measured 102 mms. and Malad 116 mms and Kandivali 130 mms.
Colaba Weather Station has recorded 26 mms and S'Cruz 17 mms. vagaries measures 17 mms.
Expecting Rainfall to taper down after 3 pm.
