In a substantial development, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), a low-pressure system is expected to form over the southeast Arabian Sea around the morning hours of Friday, May 14.

Moreover, it is likely to move across the southeast Arabian Sea and the adjoining Lakshadweep area, all the while intensifying gradually. This is likely to bring about rainfall across the upper west coast of India, effectively bringing unseasonal May showers to Coastal Karnataka, Goa, and Coastal Maharashtra which includes the capital city, Mumbai.

In recent times, several parts of the country have been witnessing thunderstorms and rainfall. With the warning of a possible cyclone by the name Tauktae, fishermen across the state have been alerted of the possibility of rough seas along the western side of India between May 14 and 16. Furthermore, coastal areas of Maharashtra, Kerala, Karnataka and Goa are expected to face squally winds with speed between 40 to 50 km/hour and gusting.

On the other hand, several states along the west coast, including Maharashtra, had to face a natural cyclone in 2020. Cyclone Nisarga had caused severe damage in the Konkan districts of Maharashtra. Nisarga was the second cyclone to strike the Indian subcontinent within two weeks’ time after Cyclone Amphan, the first super cyclonic storm to have formed in the Bay of Bengal in the 21st century which devastated the state of West Bengal in May 2020.

Making landfall in Maharashtra with winds of 110 km/h (70 mph), Nisarga became the strongest storm to strike the state in the month of June since 1891.
