@ Junaid. Badlapur snaps on Vagaries FB page . Badlapur having multiple thunder heads developing. And SW horizon of Badlapur that is Panvel end having totally dark clouds. But until now Badlapur is under miss category !

GSB said...

Junaid , good to see you finally got rid of that Unknown tag... :-)

GSB said...

No chance of rainfall here too in Thane. 32°c and 73% humidity... whitish grey clouds in almost all directions..

rajesh said...

junaid: not saying vagaries cannot go wrong..but i think todays forecast seems alright all over the region, and for your areas and outer townships i had put up
"Outer townships on mainland will get thundershowers, heavy in some towns."
outer townships include Thane, Panvel and Badlapur and other townships.
so, maybe just right..the forecast for Mumbai means for Mumbai City.

rajesh said...

Junaid: keen to know the panvel figure of today..should come to know by night i think..

Junaid said...

Rajesh sir, what is the northern limit of the monsoon as per your analysis currently...does it tally with IMD withdrawal limit put up today..

Puneet Bangera said...

very heavy rains here in dombivli.The visibility is reducing.

Abhijit said...

@ Junaid. Enjoy it. From Badlapur I can just see it's just continous lightening & thundering in west & SW and even some lightening striking are taking place and also gusty westerly winds are blowing. So except rains all other activities are taking place here in Badlapur.

GSB said...

Well it changed pretty quickly ... now thick black clouds are moving in from the SSE direction accompanied by some thundering...

paulodon said...

Junaid, OK I got the OS from your post. Which browser do you use...

sset said...

Last 1 week in blog we see only Maharashtra rains -thunders Mumbai - October month. It seems Maharashtra has stolen southern quota of rains with persistent UACs.
October also Bangalore completely dry- 0mm rain. TN many places very high temperatures - 42-43 degrees with no NEM in sight.

Junaid said...

@GSB i use the browser wich was already thr in my mobile!! I tried opera mini also but the problem recurs!

GSB said...

Junaid , try this and see if it works..

There was very heavy rain at Juhu starting 6:15 PM, the visibility had gone down a lot indicating very heavy rain intensity.

Also, as I was driving I saw that the storm was preceded by Cumulonimbus Mammatus clouds - indicating arrival of potentially severe storm

Pavan said...

Extremely heavy rain of the season woooooooooopoooooooing its the beating retreat here in pune

Ron said...

very heavy rains started about 4:30pm in deonar with deafening thunders...floods again in deonar...rains started about 6:30 at haji ali side...prabhadevi areas were partly waterlogged again..

rajesh said...

Came out of Inox (Nariman Point) and saw the roads a little wet...Colaba had recorded just 2 mms till 8.30pm...came to vagaries and checked the guage..just 3 mms, and S'Cruz managing 27 mms. !
Salil mentions good rain at dadar, but AWS showing 2 mms, must be in a localised area..but i do not trust these BMC AWS too much for accuracy.
Ok, as per readers report, the outer towns have recieved good thundershowers, with Thane getting 33 mms, Panvel getting very heavy rains as per Junaid, but not able to reach out to the figures..a friend's report from Ulhasnagar says of 14 mms till evening.

Tejas Baxi said...

i think the rain in borivali(west) was less than 3mm!! my guess..

Abhijit said...

@ Rajesh Sir. Badlapur Nil rain until now..

Just had an lightening strikings rain here. Lots of Lightening & Thundering only !
Some snaps and description have sent you via email ..

rajesh said...

GSB: As per the last monsoon withdrawal vagaries announced, the actaul withdrawal has taken place from all Gujarat except the extreme south coast, MP, UP and all states North of them. All states east of W.Bengal are under SWm still due to seasonal low eastern end.
Will annonce withdrwawal from Mah North of 19N,Vid and Chattisgarh tomorrow. High pressure gripping that region soon..
Bay low has formed and will move North as a result..
