Not Global Warming....Unusual excessive formation of ice in the Arctic Region is the sole reason for the heavy snowfall in America.
Heavy Rains or Cold Wave or Heat Wave...the trend is to Blame it on "Global Warming"....The universally ecepted "Scape Goat".....
The heavy snowfalls during the months of December 2013 and January 2014 were caused by the excessive snow and ice deposits formed in the Arctic region during August 2013.
Last year, fifty states in the U.S. experienced heavy snowfalls during the months of December 2013 and January 2014. Based on the information released on the internet, I found out that the snowfall was the aftermath of the unusual formation of extensive ice deposits in the Arctic region. However, it is explained on the basis of the “Global Warming” conception.
We are told that the ice deposits on the surface of the sea in the North Polar Region melted and the resultant sea water on the surface evaporated with the heat and rose up. This affected the polar vortex, which usually circles the middle and upper troposphere and extends into stratosphere. This further altered the path of the polar vortex, which widely spread over the entire North American continent causing heavy snowfall. http://www.dailymail.co.uk
But the British Meteorological Department has found out from the records of 30,000 stations which recorded weather that during the past seventeen years, i.e. from 1997 to 2014, the world’s temperature had not risen at all. 
Hence the explanation given for the widespread snowfall in America last year, during the months of December 2013 and January 2014 on the basis of the “Global Warming” conception is totally wrong.
In the year 2007, BBC released a news item stating that a study conducted by Prof. Dr. Wieslaw Maslowski and researchers of NASA has predicted that particularly in the month of September 2013, the North Polar Region might be ice-free. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7139797.stm
But contrary to the predictions of those “Global Warming” scientists, the Arctic Region was not only not sea ice-free, but that ice had unusually formed in an area of around 5,33,000 square miles amounting to 29 percent of additional ice formation in the Arctic Region, and this was captured in the satellite images of NASA.
It proves that the unusual excessive formation of ice in the Arctic Region is the sole reason for the heavy snowfall in America.
There is also a possibility that this incident would recur if excessive ice is again formed in the Arctic Region. So, America, Canada and European nations may be alerted on these grounds.

Author's Note:
Day's high in New Delhi was lower than Vagaries' estimate of 21c...it was 19c on Sunday..17 mms rains was measured..Safdarjung total: 25.2 mm from this WD till 5:30 pm..and will continue as given in previous post.Vagaries' target ..45 mms till Monday evening
,
we had predicted a high of 21c, against which we saw 19c in Delhi on Sunday. And as far as rains are concerned, it almost matches with the map put up for Sunday,,Waqas just confirmed the heavy rains in Lahore and sialkot (as per the green colour shown)..." downpours in Gujrat,sialkot and Lahore ... Lahore reported 25 mm in 50 minutes...still continue"


2nd day of very heavy rains in Maharashtra, ending 8.30 am on 02.03.2015

Posted Friday Night:

Mumbai, with the temperatures dropping on Friday ( 27.2c at Colaba and 28.7c at Santa Cruz), we see the "tempo" for rains building up.

The SW winds we estimated are gearing up. With gaining momentum, we can expect about 20-25 mms rain from Saturday night - Sunday night in Mumbai, about 30 mms in Aurangabad, around 35 mms in Pune and a cool day at Roha (konkan) with about 40-45 mms from Saturday Night to Sunday Night.





Posted Thursday Night (26th):

As mentioned earlier, we see rains approaching Maharashtra and Gujarat this weekend.

As an upper air trough forms, with an embedded Low over central India, precipitation will commence over South Madhya Maharashtra (Pune, Sangli, Kolhapur)  and parts of Marathwada (Beed, Aurangabad)  and Vidharbha (Akola) from Saturday 28th night.
Light showers along Coast of Sindh, more in the East. Karachi can expect showers on Saturday, upto 10 mms.

Rains increasing on Sunday 1st March in Central Konkan. Some stations in Central Konkan and central interior Konkan regions like Roha can get around 15-20 mms.
Rains also medium in Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada. Hails likely in these regions.Heavy falls likely in Mahableshwar and parts of Pune district.
Could damage the mango in the raw fruit condition. 
Showers also expected in Saurashtra on Saturday evening and Sunday. Rajkot could expect around 5-7 mms. I would also estimate light rains  (around 3-5 mms) in Junagadh.

Mumbai: getting cloudy on Saturday. With SW winds, the chances of rains increase. Saturday will be cloudy, with some rain by evening. Night will see showers or thunder showers.
Sunday will be cloudy, cool and rain in parts of city. Some showers could be light to medium. Day's high around 26c. Crisp cool night. Amount of precipitation could be upto 20 mms.

Pune can also expect showers, from Saturday night. Some heavy on Sunday, amounting to total rains of around 15 mms. Sunday will be cool at around 23c as maximum.
Heavy thunder showers for Nagpur on Sunday afternoon/evening. Maybe around 20-25 mms. Gusty South winds.
Similarly, rains also expected in Akola region from Sunday thru Monday morning. Around 10 mms.
Goa can also get some showers on sunday. Most likely by late afternoon and night. Would expect around 5-10 mms in Goa.


New Delhi: Thunder showers, from Saturday night. Cloudy with gusty Sout-Easterly winds, and some showers on Sunday, Monday also seeing thundershowers. Accumulated rainfall from Saturday night thru Monday evening could be as high as 45-50 mms. Day will drop to 21c on Sunday.





For Aurangabad Friends...Appearing in  Lokmat Times of Friday 27th February

Rains expected this weekend:
As we see the end of February, Auragabad will witness a wet end of the Month. Saturday, 28th night, Aurangabad can get some showers with thunder. Normally, we can get some rains in March, and on 1st March, Sunday, again Aurangabad will have a cloudy and wet day with rains.
Currently, the city is warm showing temperatures around 35c in the day.The first day of March will be cold and cloudy, with the day temperatures not rising over 23/24c, against a normal of 32c. Around 15-20 mms rainfall expected.
Now, this is not going to be good news for the farmers and mango growers. The mango trees are already in the flowering stage and in many cases small fruits are already on the blooms. A little rain even can cause damage. But with the predicted rains, damage cannot be ruled. Even in the fields, ready and harvested cotton and wheat crops will be subject to unseasonale rains. This may result in rotting and spoiling the harvests.
Normally March does get a few rainy days, with the temperatures generally getting warmer.

Posted Wednesday 25th Night....

Mumbai:As we see the day temperatures gradually falling since the last 2 days, we get surer of rains coming this weekend to Mumbai.
The maximum in the Day on Wednesday further fell to 30.2c at Colaba and 31.8c at SantaCruz, now in the "below normal" segment.
After recording 30/31c on Thursday, we see a further fall to 29/30c on Friday and Saturday.

As SW winds set in, this ensures clouds gathering by Saturday 28th evening, humidity increasing, and a possible shower on Saturday evening/night.

For Mumbai, Sunday 1st March will be cloudy with showers in the day, possible thunder in the evening. Today's estimate, I would put rain amount for Sunday at around 15 mms.

Saturday we will see rains covering most of Vidharbha. Sunday, Maharashtra will be covered . Interiors ( North Madhya Mah and Marathwada) will get rains, with hails. Details will be put up for Maharashtra on Thursday night.
