@ Rajesh sir. Thank you very much for helping and clearing the doubts on air pressures . So North Konkan rainy day going further on Monday ! Today subdued activity given just 3mm rain here. And it was more sultry day ! And with help of LOW and it's associated UAC can we expect off shore getting stronger on Monday/Tueesday over North Konkan !

From the last 4 days no rain in Surat. Not even the slight drizzle. Weather has become more hot and humid. At present weather is completely cloudy.

@Abhijit rains have just started half an hour back in Thane city. They are intermittent off/on and low intensity. How is the situation in Badlapur now in the evening... great cloud cover over Maharashtra and moving west...

Abhijit Modak said...

@ GSB. Here at Badlapur until yet no rains ! Some spells were fallen in early morning but after 8am just overcast ! No sun ! No rains & bit windy from SW side. Yaa, Sat image showing thick cloud covers over whole Maharashtra moving west but in real over Badlapur they are thin whitish & silver layer clouds. But When arabian branch off shore trough are active then are dense thick grey & black low levels clouds which produce the rains surely when they pass ! But this Bay system until yet not producing any rains here !
