I agree even if we look at the season as a whole we have had more number of days with thunder storms this year. Also at the start of monsoon we had many thunder days.

Nice informative figures Rohit, whats the dams status in Marathwada as it will be beneficial for them for the forthcoming months bcoz this region has suffered a lot

Nimish Thaker said...

Good stats Rohit, agree with Vinod, this year Mumbai has had many thunderstorm days. A bit uncharacteristic for Mumbai. In fact I remember that since the last one month we have many UACs / Troughs around Mumbai, almost non-stop.
