Gulab Cyclone Map Location
Cyclones usually fizzle out rapidly after landfall as the heat and moisture supply from the oceans is cut off. However, since the monsoon remains active over India, the remnants of Cyclone Gulab continue to gather ample moisture and cause heavy rainfall along its path. Moreover, yet another low-pressure area has formed off the coast of West Bengal, which could enhance moisture incursion into the Konkan region this week.
Overall, Mumbai is likely to witness generally cloudy skies with moderate to heavy rains till Friday, October 1. After that, rains may prevail, albeit with reduced intensity. As a result, daytime temperatures in the commercial capital are expected to remain below 30°C till Friday—two-three units below normal.
Overall, Maharashtra has received 15% excess rainfall this season since June 1, with a total rainfall of 1138 mm against the norm of 990 mm. Among the subdivisions, Konkan and Goa has been the rainiest with a total of 3,466 mm rainfall, making it the rainiest subdivision in the entire country.
Drought-prone areas like Marathawada and Vidarbha have also registered more than 900 mm of rainfall this season. However, heavy rainfall at the end of the season is bad news for farmers as they tend to affect certain standing crops, while inundation can also spoil yield.
