Posted 12th Evening:
New Low...BB-8 developing in Bay....
Mumbai: The Monsoon is playing " Come & Go" with Mumbai.
*June with low rainfall,
* A drenched July,
*A long dry spell in August, causing concern and worry..and then a wet spell, bringing hope and smiles.
*September: A wet beginning and a dry spell, and now, another dry, hot spell ...
But...this Monsoon, it will continue with its unpredictable games.
Another wet spell is expected over Mumbai from 16th ~20th..bringing good rains, and we may see all the lakes overflowing.
The Mumbai lakes and dams level reported at 6 am on is of the total.
The quantum and intensity is still unsure, but will be able to get some inclination as the Low crosses the coast on 13th.( Maybe in excess of 100 ~150 mms between 16th ~20th.But we can ascertain that later).
As said earlier in Vagaries, a good spell in September should not be a reason to worry for Mumbai !
Interior Maharashtra is in for good bountiful rains.
From 16th, for the next 3/4 days, Vidharbh, Marathwada, and Madhya Maharshtra will receive the much required rainfall for the standing crops.
Sambhajinagar District will receive good rains from 16th..with cumulative at least 70 -80 mms next 4 days.
