The Lake Storage position has improved considerably in the last 2 days, and the total storage as on 6th is 18.29% ( 16% last year this date). That would amount to around 70 days of available water.

6th Night/Friday 7th: Orange Alert : Expected frequent showers, some heavy.

(When mid level vortex developing scenario is present...either it can rain very heavy or just get delayed / rain in sea and only when westerlies commence, it starts raining.)

But, with the Monsoon trough moving Northwards, Mumbai and Maharashtra can expect a decrease in rain intensity from Saturday.

But, we do not see much change in the Mumbai rainfall pattern next week.

 However, due to the increased moisture content prevailing, the Ghat stations could get heavy rains this weekend.
