That is right Rajesh. It is WML or LOW formed in lower latitudinal westerlies near Kanyakumari or south of Kanyakumari. This will give push for SWM onset in Arabian Sea.
But the tilly tallying power house "MASCARENE HIGH" will play a decisive role in SWM rainfall.

In Badlapur at 6pm,Gusty winds from SE direction, which may be of 50kmph in gust blown all the soil's dust in the air and visibility got dropped to less than 1km.. Trees were bending to fullest but later clouds broken up and rain was missed by 10 to 20kms margin.. Winds lasted for 30 to 40mins..
Nearby Karjat got 11 mm rainfall from this Storm.

Why have regions around the Eastern MP, Chattisgarh and adjoining Odisha regions been getting pre monsoon showers ?
These showers were locally prominent, and overall, the MP and Chattisgarh region shows deficiency in rainfall.
Heat wave conditions which prevailed over central India for some days in the initial half of the 1st week of May got abated subsequently with the re-starting of convective rains.

Now, this was due to slow moving, deep amplitude westerly trough to the west of the sub-continent.
However, the upper level divergence ahead of this trough (WD), when combined with moisture incursion and localised vorticity provided conducive conditions for convective activity. So, a trough at 850 hp extended from the above cyclonic circulation to northeast Madhya Pradesh across Jharkhand and north Chattisgarh on 8th.
Active Western Disturbance during the later part of the week led to further delayed in the development of the 'Seasonal Low' over northwestern parts of India and Pakistan.

Pradeepji- it is refreshing to see interiors of TN to receive good rains after 8-10 years of drought or scarcity...boon to farmers apparently Sri Lanka also escaped drought after late 2014 - 2015 good rains.. Sri Lanka was also facing 5-8 years of drought and .. both TN/Sri Lanka mercy of NEM..

SSET, from last NEM interior and south TN are getting way above rainfall. Even drought areas like Tirunrelveli, Karur, Tiruppur and thoothukudi.

Only concern is Kancheepuram, Chennai and Tiruvallur districts
