The southwest #monsoon has withdrawn from most of #India. However, most of the country is witnessing cloud cover, with some parts (e.g., #Maharashtra) getting thunderstorms due to a low-pressure system. UP, Uttarakhand & Nepal are set to witness a major rain event.
A major heavy rainfall event is expected to affect parts of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and western Nepal between 17 & 19 October as a result of an interaction between a low-pressure system from the Bay of Bengal and a western disturbance. Watch out from flooding and landslides.
The round of thunderstorms will end in most of #Maharashtra on ~11 Oct, which would lead to dry weather until 14 Oct. From ~15 Oct, parts of the state can get more rains due to low-pressure systems. The #monsoon's withdrawal from the entire state appears unlikely before ~15 Oct.
The southwest #monsoon has rapidly withdrawn from northern parts of #India. The meteorological conditions suggest further withdrawal from more parts of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and possibly western Bihar by 11 Oct.
#CycloneShaheen has made landfall near Sohar in #Oman. This is for the third time that the Shaheen-Gulab low-pressure system is encountering land in its over 15 days tenure. A preliminary investigation suggests that it has already travelled a great-circle distance of ~6000 km.
