Thunder heads in Maharashtra Wednesday Evening

This Dundee sat.Image of 5.30pm Wednesday, shows Thundercloud evelopments in Maharashtra. The Taller ones are seen East of Mumbai and further in NW.
Point I want to make is, there are 2/3 specific thunderheads in South Saurahtra. They have grown tall and the tops are spreading (anvils) into the stratosphere, Northwards. They are forming cirrus clouds. One is also seen across the gulf of Cambay.
similar cirrus formations are seen in North Mah. also.




Monday night's storm brought the following rainfall around Mumbai:

Kalyan 72 mms, Uran 71 mms, Pen 68 mms, Matheran 61 mms, Panvel 68 mms (i was given 37 mms.maybe it was till 8.30pm. Junaud can tell if it rained at night), Karjat and Colaba 52 mms.
Elsewhere Akole (Nagar) 72 mms.
Nilwande (Nagar) 95 mms, Kadwa (Nasik) 91 mms. Bhatsa Dam 72 mms.

Superb anvils .. Today morning only I mentioned in the blog that isolated places of South Saurashtra may also develop an thundery activity due to UAC influence !

Abhijit Modak said...

@ emkay & @ Junaid.. Whether Any rain activity with thunderstorm taking place at moment in Panvel region ! I think from Karjat, Matheran belt Rain may be approaching Panvel !

@rajesh it indeed rained at night tht day in panvel ,,we received two spells on monday one was very heavy betwen 6:30 nd 8:40 pm nd the oder was between 11:20 nd 12:30 wichhad varying intensity of rain !! So 67 mm for panvel is truly justified! !!!,@ Abhijit it has started raining here at panvel,,but light rains yet,,m expecting sumthng coz the thundercell developments towars south east!so m hoping for sumthng big

@ Juniad. That only Badlapur bypassed storm moved to Panvel..As just 25kms SW of Badlapur Panvel is located..Badlapur at moment having lightening & thundering in SW side. Thats why I ask u.

Abhijit Modak said...

Confirmed from the friend just now that Very heavy rain with huge lightening grounding & severe thundering sound lashing Ambernath & Ulhasnagar belt..

It's seem that 2nd Thunderstorm also bypassed Badlapur now with just drizzling here..

Abhijit Modak said...

Just thick drops drizzling from past 1hr in Badlapur.Now lightening & thundering stopped. So 3mm noted in 1hr.

IMD satellite picture shows thick clouds over central India. MP,chattisgarh,Guj,Mah...Raj. Very ironical IMD says monsoon withdrawn ...next day monsoon vigourous on same regions. Delay of withdrawl due to moisture incursion.

Bangalore,Mysore... Sept- dry, October more drier. Not a single drop of rain. Infact entire TN shows no cloud cover (we are in oct). NEM may not even start due to persistent SWM. This defnitely shows desertification process for SE interior India, and south on whole is showing decreasing rains and absence of any persistent monsoon axis - trend quite apparent over last few years. Same is with Sri Lanka- 2012 is a serious drought. Time scientist conduct research on chaning weather pattern of India.

Rain and flashes of lightning in santacruz@2135

emkay said...

sorry saw the queries on panvel just now and surprised hearing heavy rains in Mumbai, Panvel definitly did not recv 68 mm according to my reading of things, it rained moderately upto 8 PM then no rains, absolutely no thundering

GSB said...

Very heavy rains here in Thane (Godhbundar Road) for the past 10 minutes accompanied by a little bit of thunder.

Rajesh sir, that's a much needed improvement in the comments section. Good to see the back of so many "ANONYIES" ...

Abhijit Modak said...

@ GSB. Here in Badlapur just cloudy now with 25 C temp. And Panvel might be also same. I think Borivali & surrounding patch is under rains now.

GSB said...

Abhijit, the rains have stopped here after a brief but intense spell of about 20 minutes. There seems to be no rain in Thane city and Mulund(w) and none in Borivali and Dahisar in the past one hour. Probably a localised affair only in this part of Thane.

Unknown said...

@gsb ,,rains stopped at panvel by 8 pm,,althoug ther was occasional lightning ,,but no rains,,only sum drizzles tht too ocassional,,but as of now no rains

Junaid, when you log into Google , go to google.com... from the top panel click more... select Blogger... in Blogger you have to find Blogger profile..(will be at the top right corner)... and then select edit profile... and change DISPLAY NAME to whatever you want like JUNAID. Hope that helps.. !!

Abhijit said...

I Think UAC now more near to Konkan(including Mumbai) coast .So today and tomorrow might be an widespread rain for Konkan region..
