Mumbai (Commodities Control) - The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a "red alert" for Konkan and Madhya Maharashtra region in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa for next 72 hours. Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are expected to receive good rainfall as well.

"There has been extremely heavy rainfall activity over Konkan including Mumbai, there has been a record of more than 20 centimetre rainfall at a few places in Mumbai and suburban areas. Today also, heavy to very heavy rain at few places and extremely heavy rainfall at isolated places in Mumbai and in Konkan is expected to occur," IMD's Mohapatra said.

Even Goa, Madhya Maharashtra, Vidarbha and many regions in Gujarat are likely to receive heavy to very heavy rains today and tomorrow. Orange alert has been issued for M.P., Karnataka and Kerala. According to the weather department, rainfall in Konkan and Goa is likely to continue until 6th August. It will also expand to the south Gujarat region from today onwards.
IMD is expecting extremely heavy rainfall of more than 20 centimetres in the south Gujarat region.
Low-pressure area is getting formed over the North Bay of Bengal, Orissa and West Bengal coast. So already heavy to very heavy rainfall has been there in coastal areas of Orissa and West Bengal, which will move gradually towards Gujarat coast. Therefore, in the next three days, the entire central part of the country will have very good rainfall activity, he further mentioned.
As of today, rainfall for the country has been normal. It is about 98% of the average expected rainfall so far. Past two weeks, there was deficient rainfall in the central part of the country but with this low-pressure area very good rainfall activity is expected for next one week at least over the central part and a very good rainfall is expected for the country as a whole, Mohapatra said.
During the season so far, Gujarat has been 46% rain-deficient, while Eastern Rajasthan received 32% and Western U.P. received 28% less than average rainfall.
Meanwhile Bihar has received 40% above normal rains. Rayalseema received 130%, Tamil Nadu received 52%, Karnataka received 30% and Madhya Maharashtra received 40% above normal rainfall.
