The system,UAC, discussed yesterday, has moved fast westwards, and, now seems to be over Gujarat. Well, that is at least 12 hrs faster than forecasted in this blog yesterday. Its "whizzing" quite fast !
Anyway, at the time of writing this blog, its already pouring heavy rains in Gujarat, and Mumbai's expectations from the system, in terms of rain were pretty well met with.
Mumbai: Saturday was a rainy day, with frequent heavy spells. The highest rain from 10 am to 10 pm, Saturday, was at Worli, where 184 mms of rain was recorded. Dadar was next with 158 mms. Colaba got 102 mms of rain, while it was 40 mms at Santa Cruz. Vile Parle collected 83 mms of precipitation. The Municipal HQ at CST recieved 83 mms of rain.
Quite a big variation from place to place within the city. Our blog estimate (for Mumbai) was of around 80 mms for Saturday.
For Mumbai,I expect the rains to taper off from Sunday afternoon. About 35-40 mms on Sunday.
The system should move away, and weaken fast.
Posted 12th night The Line of Wind Discontinuity continues to bring rains to Madhya Mah., coffee showers to Coorg and heavy showers to Goa...
