Hot conditions return to Pakistan, NW India and Gujarat on Monday, 6th June:
Highest in Asia and Pakistan: 49c at Sibbi, Jacobabad, Larkana and Sukkar.
Highest in India: Bikaner at 47.9c and Jaisalmer at 47.5c.
Gujarat heated up to above normal temperatures on Monday. Bhuj was 45.6c, Deesa 45.4c and Idar at 44.4c.
AS-1 update as on 9.30 pm IST : AS1 lies at 18.7N and 71.5E and is upgraded to a "low" status by IMD. Its core pressure is at 1002 mb and wind speeds at 25 knts. A minute improvement from our last update.
IMD feels a good chance of it improving to a depression status, and move NW.
Improve it may, but will it hit land as deep system, or fizzle out before hitting land ?
We have to watch and see if the off shore sustains now or "defaltes" in the next 2 days. This would determine the SWM advance above the 18N line.
Mumbai had a couple of showers in the morning, and a sharp shower in the evening with lightning flashes in the NE skies. 3mms at Colaba and 1 mm at S'Cruz.
Max. temperature today at Colaba was 28.9c !
Tuesday: Partly cloudy with 2/3 showers. SWM advance will depend on position and strength of trough now.
