However, the lakes may still remain deficient as the rains there will be less.
Initially heavy rains restricted to Coastal Belt in Konkan till Tuesday. Then moving to Nasik/Pune Regions.
Pune: expecting few showers in parts of city this weekend. But increase to meaningful rains (Heavy showers) on Monday and Tuesday.

Jabalpur: Will see some increase in rainfall from Monday 3rd for a few days. North M.P. will see good rains this period.
We may see rainfall pattern increasing for East M.P. regions after the 4th of August, when a Low forms in the Head Bay and tracks West into Odisha.
A proper low should form in the Bay around Mid August , finally, to bring good rainfall into Central India and the regions around.

Kaustabh: See last year end of season water was there for a little more than a year supply and a little more. Today, as i have given , we have 130 days supply still. No question of any miscalculation as Vagaries takes from Hydraulic Dept directly.

Kartik: Will be publishing the overall rainfall asap.
