Mumbai got its predicted thundershower on Monday and Tuesday evening/nights.
The actual v/s forecast is put up on Mumbai page and will be updated tomorrow morning taking into account today's rain. should be in the expected range till Wednesday morning.
A minor vortex at 700 hps formed off Mumbai and cloudiness merging with the UAC moving from the East into the central regions.
Today, Tuesday, Alibag measured 84 mms, and Ahmednagar received 46 mms of rain till 5.30pm. Much needed ! Igatpuri near Nasik managed 48 mms.
Yesterday, Monsoon has moved into rest of MP and parts of UP.(Put up on Current Weather Page Yesterday).
Answer, or rather my opinion, to several queries on the wundermap showing intense cloud colour (pink) but no rainfall : Clouds swirling with the winds at various levels form multi layered clouds. The depth of the UAC descended to 850 hpa, and forming of 2/3 layered cloudings give different temperature signals to the satellite sensors. Its based on these sensors that the colour images are projected, with artificial colours of course.
Pink colouration does signify high and dense clouds, cumulo-nimbus or even multi layered strato-cumulus. But NOT ALWAYS does it precipitate. Down on the ground, the region may show "ready to precipitate" conditions. But several and many factors are involved for the actual precipitation from cloud to ground.
I have seen and noticed on several previous occasions the deep (coloured) cloud on any image, but no reports of precipitation. Just on the 1st of July, Saurashtra was "pink", but no rainfall !
These are just indicators, and for budding meteorologists this is an experiance and learning to make one's own judgement. It needs time and patience to understand and grasp the weather map.
