Cyclonic circulation brings abundant rainfall in western India

New Delhi: A cyclonic circulation off the western coast caused widespread heavy to very heavy rainfall in various districts of western Maharashtra, sections of Gujarat, and central India, with several stations recording more than 60 mm rains in the 24 hours ending at 8.30 a.m. on Thursday.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the unseasonal rainfall was caused by a cyclonic circulation over the southeast and adjacent east-central Arabian Sea, as well as a trough in lower levels that ran from this cyclonic circulation to Kutch in Gujarat, as well as the Western Disturbance, which was a trough in the mid-upper troposphere westerlies in northwest India.

The IMD has previously predicted that Mumbai would have light to moderate rainfall on Thursday, while the remainder of Maharashtra will remain gloomy, with fog possible, especially along the Western Ghats.

Rainfall was reported for 24 hours, from 8.30 a.m. to 8.30 a.m. Thursday: Santa Cruz 91.2 mm, Colaba 90.2 mm, Byculla 100.5 mm, CSMT 94.5 mm, Juhu Airport 93 mm, Matunga 94.5 mm, Sion 92.5 mm, Vikhroli 88.5 mm, Thane-Belapur 90.2 mm, and Dahanu 114.4 mm in Mumbai and its suburbs.
