On the International Page, Vagaries had initially put up, live temperatures of some U.S. cities.This was done as there was a severe cold wave, and getting the current readings would be interesting.
Later, on 30th january 2011, upon requests for temperatures of Indian cities, Vagaries put up a special page "Current Weather" with 3 Indian cities, and later expanded on 18th February 2011 with 6 more cities.
To cater to its International demands, "Current Weather Page", will now include latest from Kathmandu,
See Mumbai Page for Latest on City Weather.
Sunday, 20th. Feb in Delhi and Mumbai.
F3 effect on Delhi:
Rainfall: 15 mms.
Central India UAC-1 effect in Mumbai:
Wind Gusts Reaching 44 kmph in the afternoon.
Both Photo Courtesy "The Hindustan Times ".
UAC-1 in Central India is moving eastwards, rather getting pulled eastwards. This will make the advent of F4 into Northern India easier and faster.
F4 will precipitate in N.Pakistan and India from Wednesday thru Friday. Much of Kashmir, H.P., Utteranchal and NW India plains will be under medium precipitation Wednesday thru Friday, 25th Feb.
Another Upper Air system (UAC-2) is possible in Central Mah. and adjoining South M.P ,as a secondary to F4 from Wednesday. . May precipitate rains in Vidarbha and adjoining A.P.
This Week Summary Forecast: (Subject to minor variations)
Tuesday, 22nd. : Medium rain in interior Karnataka and parts of T.N.
Wednesday, 23rd. : F4 effect Northern Pakistan. Into India, it rains/snow in Kashmir while light rains continue in interior Karnataka .
Thursday, 24th. : F4 effective in Kashmir, H.P. and light precipitation in Punjab and Haryana. Secondary UAC-2 could form and precipitate medium rains in Vidarbha, South M.P. and interior Karnataka.
Friday, 25th.: F4 anchored in hills now, and spreading into Western Nepal. Central India UAC-2 could weaken and gradual decrease in rains in East Mah. and adjoining regions from Friday.
Tuesday ICC World Cup Cricket match may be free of rains in Nagpur, but Friday's cricket may be interrupted by rains.

Record Snowfall in Himachal Pradesh:
Wednesday, February 16, 2011
Shimla saw a light spell of snowfall in the evening, nearby places like Kufri and Narkanda have been experiencing moderate snowfall since morning, according to a Met official. Manali too received moderate snow.Keylong, the headquarters of Lahaul and Spiti, recorded about 26 cm of snow, while it was 4.9 cm thick in Kalpa in Kinnaur district.
Nepal is battered by F2 today. Kathmandu had day long rains and very heavily overcast skies. With 39 mms of rain during the day, the mercury could manage 10c as the high ,actually it was recorded in the morning itself, and the low was only 9.7c .
Several regions of Nepal got unprecedented precipitation. Normal life in hilly districts in mid and far western development regions has been affected due to incessant rain and snowfall for the last two days.
Flights to Jumla, Humla, Kalikot, Bajura and other districts from Nepalgunj and Surkhet have been canceled.
Snowfall hits Rukum lives as normal life in Rukum district has been affected.
Due to incessant snowfall since Tuesday evening, Taksera, Ranmamaikot, Hukam, Sisne, Gotamkot, Jang witnessed the snowfall up to 4ft.
Effect of F2 will be over in Nepal from Friday, or earliest by Thursday night. The system along with its precipitation is moving into Bhutan and the NE states . Particularly, Arunachal.
A UAC is forming due to wind convergance in Central India. With winds Moving anti-clockwise as is normally in a system, it will generate fairly strong Northerlies in western Mah. (Konkan included) and moderate Southerlies in East Vidharbh/ Chattisgarh on from Sunday thru Monday. Some precipitation could be expected in Orissa, Chattisgarh and East Vidharbha as a result on Sunday/Monday (20th/21st).But cloudy weather, and mainly medium alto-stratus clouding in Central India on Sun/Mon/Tues will bring warm and stuffy weather to the region.
At the same time, F3, would approach N. India via Pakistan. The precipitation effect of F3 would be restricted to Central/Northern Pakistan on Saturday and Kashmir and H.P. region of India on Sunday. The system will be fed by the moisture remaining from F2.
Since all the "action' is from Sunday thru Tuesday for India, and to make it simple, vagaries has put up a forecast map for these days. Simpler to grasp the precipitation and winds.
F4 is also due ,maybe from Tuesday in Pakistan, and then into India. Lets leave the discussion on F4 for later !
Mumbai cloudy to overcast with light drizzle in some parts on Wednesday. currently 23c at 9.00 am. Check updated Mumbai Page also.

Largest departure from a normal high temperature..Update on International Page…
AFTERMATH OF COLDEST SPELL IN 30 YRS...Details of the
Neeraj reports from Kathmandu: "I think a record has been broken in Kathmandu. yesterday's (Friday's) high was 26.5 celcius, which is quite unprecedented. Previous Feb Record high was i think 25"
That is a bit high, considering the fact that the normal for this day, 4th. Feb, is 21c.
Well, on checking, I think the Kathmandu record for February is 27c, on a much later date, Feb 26th. 2006. As far as my record search shows, this is the Feb high.
But yesterday's reading could be an all time high for this day,4th. Feb, the previous high for the day being 23c.
