Though mumbai missed the rains which was expected but the good news is interior maharashtra and parts of gujarat getting much needed rains.

Hello Rajesh, how do you see the new low developing in the Bay. What would be the progress and how would Mumbai and Gujarat be impacted ?

Thanks for good compilation of Maharashtra toppers + maps.

Maharashtra ghats, konkan region is well known for extreme rains 400-500mm in 24hrs. I feel in just 2 spells Maharashtra may reach top for highest SWM 2018... Already for last 4-5 years Maharashtra has been in top.

Mumbai sends 16lakhs of potable water to flood hit Kerala. Problem here is Kerala is not used to very heavy rains and this has happened after 30 years with recent 3 years of drought. Another important factor is loss of forest, loss of native tree species and mining. Growing of eucalyptus, rubber, acacia is poisonous to soil, does not hold water and does not support bird life. Maharashtra always promoted massive afforestation of native species like banyan,peepal,neem,tamarind,jamun,mango..
Last year 2017 July-August Gujarat suffered floods due to continuous extreme rains..

Otherside AP declares drought for entire Rayalseema barren no rain since june... Bangalore,Mysore,Mandya.... have not received any heavy spells since june. Last year they had received good rains in same period (aug-sep).

BB-8 has formed and will cross the Odisha coast as a Well Marked Low...For Mumbai we see frequent showers, though passing , some with heavy intensity.
No water problem for Mumbai seen.See latest snippet

Chances of BB-8 reaching Sindh is very less. Karachi will not get much benefit it seems.

@sset : I dont know where you got your facts but Maharashtra Ghats have been toppers for only 2016 and 2017; For 2015 Hulikal,Agumbe etc were ahead of Mah. Ghats while in 2014 Talacauvery, Hulikal, Agumbe etc were again ahead of Maha ghats. Same for 2013 when Patgaon was SWM topper by a whisker but for year-end rainfall Hulikal was again ahead. 2012 : same theme Hukial, Agumbe etc ahead of all maha ghats heavyweights. I am excluding Cherra/Mawsymram for all years (they usually end up crossing 1000cms most of the time). This year Talacauvery is almost 150cm ahead of Kitwade so far!

Don't let a few years anomaly make you forget the average rainfalls..
