Posted 15th October Night:
Bengaluru City:
South West Monsoon started poorly in Bangalore City...The first 75 days from 1st June to 15th August brought only 129 mms of rain...The next 60 days till 15th October saw 44 wet days.Incessant rains over the past 2 months has totalled up 1660 mms ( till date) of rain in Bangalore City in 2017. 
Bangalore AP shows a total of 1330 mms this year till date...
Graph of Airport of last 90 days: 


This ( 1660 mms) is the Highest ever for Bangalore City in a calendar year. Normal annual is 980 mms.....October this year to date has recorded 386 mms (281 mms above normal).
This is due to the extended period of the SWM in Bangalore...and we have two and a half months of NEM still to come !

The earlier record was 1608 mms set in 2005 mms. Before that it as 1349 mms in 1916 . Lowest annual total ever is 544 mms in 1913. However the wettest ever October was in 1956 with 522 mms.

However, we find rainfall decreasing to almost no rain after Monday 16th for a week at least.

Mumbai:
Mumbai Santa Cruz touches 3000 mms ...Jan-May 4 mms, June-September 2946 mms Octber tilll date 52 mms...Total 3002 mms.( For records see Vagaries Extreme).

Sunday 15th  saw some sharp showers in the Northern Suburbs of Mumbai, with Mulund recording 44 mms and Kandivali 33 mms. 

This could possibly be the end of the seasonal rains for Mumbai City. Expecting Monsoon current and strength to end from Monday 16th October (Mumbai City and surroundings). From Tuesday/Wednesday, winds will change to N/NE.

SWM likely to withdraw from North Konkan, Vidharbh and North Madhya Mah.and Eastwards.

Thanks for sharing the data on bangalore rains.
The rains started on Aug14th. So two months of relentless rain.

A lot of lakes are full and overflowing. Frankly glad to know that the rains are pausing now due to the system over BOB.
Most of South , South West , South East and CDB area's of bangalore took the brunt. They have numbers ranging from 145 cms to 160 cms.
My area in extreme south bangalore clocked 157 cms.

I would like to convey my journey from Mumbai airport to Dubai yesterday morning from aeroplane.
Mumbai airport was overcast with very light drops falling.
Then the plane took off. The clouds became more darker and stronger as we were off the coast of Mumbai. There was a lot of lightning too.
One lightning striked the plane as well. There were light rains in between. The plane moved approximately 50 Km west off the coast of Mumbai and then moved North West (NW). The overcast, drizzles and big lightning strikes continued till approximately 250 Km. Thereafter the weather was clear in the journey. We reached the coast of Eastern Oman and flew over the deserts of Oman and Southern UAE. We entered Dubai airport from the southeastern side.
