Mumbai is in extreme large excess of > 1000mm. Another spell of rain soon Mumbai will touch 3000mmm! Mumbai overtakes KAR Mangalore !
August we do not see any break monsoon with sunny spells. Entire Mumbai months together rain with dark gloomy days cutoff from sun light.

Good to read this. August has been splendid for SWM in all its glory. Importantly it has rained heavily in the Ghats and catchment areas. The farmers would be delighted with this.

And Vagaries as always giving us crucial updates adds to the joy of SWM every season.
