There is nothing much to write between my last blog of 4th. and this. If one reads thru the previous blog, the situation is almost the same ,and we have to wait till around the 11th.,as discussed then, for the much elusive Bay low. The low today over the Bangladesh coast is still too weak and much of it over the land area to actually prove effective.
Yes, and the deficit is growing in all the peninsula states, Gujarat, and the central region. (Aurangabad in Marathwada has reached a deficit of 75%).
Excess rain still holds good in the line along the trough, that is, Punjab, U.P.,Delhi, Bihar and Jharkhand.
Today,heavy rains held on to the western end of the trough, with Islamabad (Pakistan) getting 270mms in the last 2 days, and Jammu recieving 99mms today. The map shows how scanty the rains have been in the rest of the sub continent today. (The map shows rain from 5.30 a.m. till 5.30 p.m. on 7th.).
Also, its time now the western end of the monsoon trough pushes its way westwards into west Rajasthan and Sindh,Pakistan, to precipitate the much needed monsoon rains there.
