The Mumbai based Indian Meteorological Department has issued warnings of cyclonic circulations over the northeast Arabian Sea.
The spot is said to be off north Gujarat coast at upper levels and the east-central Arabian Sea off south Maharashtra coast in a higher level.
The Met Department issued an official statement wherein it stated that the off-shore trough at mean sea level from south Gujarat coast to north Kerala coast now runs from south Maharashtra Coast to Kerala coast. This situation is very likely to cause heavy to very heavy rainfall along the west coast of India and parts of Gujarat on day 1.
It need be mentioned that only last week, Indian Meteorological Department had issued warnings of cyclonic circulations over north and south Konkan and adjoining south Gujarat.
Warnings of isolated heavy to very heavy rain were issued over Konkan and Goa, while isolated heavy rain warnings were issued for Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Marathwada, Coastal Karnataka, and Kerala.
Mumbai experienced heavy rainfall earlier this month causing severe water-logging and disruption of local train services.>
