Persistent cyclonic circulation over south Gujarat is giving torrential rains 200-300mm. Circulation is persisting since many days. South GUJ and North MAHA seas are always sweet spots for any cyclones,lows,UAC,depressions. Why is this so??

Hope just circulation develop over TN/AP.

Incredible rains in Santacruz - Juhu - Andheri area since 8:00 AM, the current rain rate at 11:15 AM in Andheri West is very intense. I think, if it continues for 1 more hour it will lead to flooding in this parts of Mumbai. Didn't see any warnings on this at all, totally taken by surprise by these rains. I have asked this multiple times on the forum, don't understand what's causing such heavy rain spells in and around Mumbai. This is really turning out to be a season of woes for Mumbai - and it's only been 12 days!!!

Call it divine or nature's prowess, but see how the rainfall this year is unusually concentrated in the catchment areas. Beyond scientific explanation.

I hope the govt builds some way to channelize natural rain water to reach dams, lakes, rivers, etc in parched interiors (this may mean diverting flow of water). The other day I read that on 1/2 July BMC flushed out rainwater equal to total water storage capacity of Tulsi & Vihar lakes into sea. What a waste of clean pure natural water!!! The catchment areas & parched interiors should also be the real beneficiaries of Rains!!!

Rainfall has tapered down at Andheri West since 1:00 PM, its overcast but hasn't rained since then. Hopefully we will get some respite from this mayhem.
