The Monsoon axis remains in the Northern regions of India, thus pushing the South West Monsoon into most regions barring the extreme Western parts of India.
In spite of these Break Conditions, Thunder Cell activity with CumuloNimbus build up was seen locally, not as a widespread system, in parts of South Madhya Maharashtra and Northern Marathawada, with Solapur recording 41 mms of rain.
Southwards, the "pop up" brought rains in Interior Karnataka, with Bangalore A.P. receiving 79 mms and City 40 mms.
These thunder Storms occurred as a result of localised heating causing a slight dis-organisation of winds in the Western Peninsula (See map above) and helped by an upper air trough at 700 hp levels ( in Central Peninsula) . This can happen in break Monsoon conditions due to excess localised heating and rising thermals supported by trough Divergence if any.
We see thunder showers in patches in Marathwada for next 2 days. Thunder shower with extreme lightning possible. Next 4 days , moderate medium rains in Marathwada.
Aurangabad District will get some showers with medium intensity next 3 days (around 15-20 mms in areas of rain per day). Will help drain out the fields of water from heavy showers.
