Anupam Kashyapi, head of IMD Pune’s weather forecasting division said: “Systems contributing to the ongoing rainfall in Maharashtra include the low pressure area over northeast Madhya Pradesh and neighbourhood with associated cyclonic circulation extending upto 7.6km above mean sea level.”
“The east-west trough from northwest Rajasthan to northeast Bay of Bengal across northeast Rajasthan and northwest Madhya Pradesh; and an off-shore trough at mean sea level from Maharashtra coast to Kerala coast. The systems have made monsoon active to vigorous in certains parts of Maharashtra,” Kashyapi added.
He said that Konkan is likely to get widespread rain during the next four to five days because the systems are very strong and very close to North Konkan.
“Hence, districts like Palghar, Raigad and Thane are likely to get heavy to very heavy rainfall, while one to two areas may even get extremely heavy rain during the next 48 hours. In Madhya Maharashtra, ghat sections of Pune, Satara and Nashik mainly have an isolated heavy to very heavy rain warning during the next 24 hours,” he added.
Pune city, meanwhile, is likely to record moderate rain till June 30, followed by light to moderate rainfall. Skymet weather services on Wednesday said that Mumbai recorded 74mm of rainfall in just about six hours between 8.30am and 2.30pm.
Rainfall activity is all set to cross three digits in less than 24 hours for Mumbai, as heavy to very heavy rains will continue over the city, the private weather forecaster said.
