First, a refresher , to continue from where we left on Wednesday. Our last forecast on 31st October, Vagaries had put up, reads:-
"Thursday 1st November- Friday 2nd November: Rainfall can be expected all along this trough line, with the heavier falls in the region the BB-10 system is embedded. Hence precipitation spreading into interior Karnataka, Northern AP and Southern Maharashtra. Light/medium rains drifting into Konkan and coastal Karnataka.
Saturday 3rd November: If the trough remains intact and sustainable (which is questionable as it is not the season), we may see some enhanced rainfall along the Konkan belt."
Thursday/Friday , it seems was almost on stream. A little variation seen was the clouding from the system spreading more eastwards due to South feeding winds remaining strong.Some rains were reported and recorded from the interiors of the state, specially the Eastern parts . Nagpur was cool (25c) and had 17 mms, Gondia 15 mms and Kolhapur 6mms. in the day. Around Pune there were reports of light rains (0.6 mms).(Figs till 5.30pm).
For Saturday, it is obvious the other option of the trough NOT sustaining, prevails. The trough has been miserably let down by a fast depleting BB-10, now almost over, just a small area of 1006 mb near AP/Chattisgarh border.
A very weak trough (should we call it a trough?) runs from Goa thru South Mah thru North AP and just fizzling out over the AP coast region.
1 more day of remnant clouds in Interior Konkan, S.Mah, Vid, South Konkan/Goa and coastal AP upto Bengal.
Mumbai City: The wind vane shows a steady East. Was waiting for it to S or SE.
Partly cloudy the city remained hot at 35c.
South Mumbai had 2 drops falling in our area at around 8 pm Friday, but cleared off within 15 minutes. (Was out in the lawns last evening, so could manage to witness the few drops, otherwise....doubtfull).
