The low, has literally "whizzed" past,and thru the central regions, and by saturday night, is already over south Rajasthan/Gujarat ! Surprised at its super speed.Yes, I did mention it will whizz thru, but that was supposed to reach Rajasthan as per my assumption by Sunday!

Overnite rains were particularly heavy in Marathwada. The chief amounts of heavy rains in the region as on Saturday morning in cms: Parbhani-17, Kinwat, Hingoli 16 each, ,Kalamnuri-15, Mahur-14, Bhokar, Audha-13 each, Sengaon-12, Nanded, Umari, Ardhapur-11 each, Bhadgaon, Basmat-9 each,
Yeola,Loha-7 each, Billoli-6, Kopargaon, Igatpuri, Nandgaon, Gaganbawda, Sillod, Kannad, Soegaon, Khandar, Ahmedpur-5 each,

Saturday daytime, was good, weather wise and rainfall wise for Marathwada and western Vidharbha regions. Rainfall throughout the day was fai
rly good, ranging from 20-50 mms in various cities.
But the day was super cool ! 7c below normal at 22c (day's max) at Aurangabad and Jalna. In Western Vidharbha too, it was cool at 21.9c in the day at Washim and Yeotmal was 22c. all almost 5-7c below. Shirdi was a pleasant 22.7c.

With the system moving fast, I see it going west into Pakistan by Sunday itself. And carrying alongwith it all its clouding. Now? Total decrease in rainfall in the rear of the system!
Regions which have benefited from this wet wave can now breathe a respite from rains, and regions, such as the southern peninsula areas, will remain in "status Quo". (sorry for repeating this term :))
Could even mean lesser rainfall in the already deficit hilly areas of Karnataka. I see a drier central and southern peninsula next week.
Personally seeing a low around the 13th. in the bay. But should be followed daily .

Mumbai got 2 mms of rain on Friday, the last of the "rest" day !
On Saturday, it has rained 37 mms during the day till 6 pm readings.But as i mentioned in yesterday's forecast, I do not see much in this system and would continue the same forecast for Sunday as yesterday's. Rain decreasing on Sunday with around 25 mms of rain.Monday thru wednesday will be days with little rainfall for Mumbai, with sunny intervals.
