Is there any chance that this depression, after crossing India would enter into Sindh and precipitate some rains?

I do not think so Rehan.

Hi Rajesh,
Mist,fog, calm lakes, green canopy of trees reminds a haunting scene.

"Raat aur din diya jale, mare man me andeyara hai, ...kitna ajab ye dil ka safar nadiya me aye jaye jaise lahar"
song sung by nightangle Lata Mangeshkar on unforgettable great actress Nargis Dutt - movie plays role of split personality!!

Yet another imortal classic song by Lata Mangeshkar "ayega ayega ane wala ayega" film Mahal ghost paranormal by great actress Madhubala

Thanks

Reminds me of a corner bangalow at Lonavla where i stayed for long years looking at Khandala mountain (looks like a horse saddle)and draped in mist for four months with Orange Headed thrushes, Malabar Whistling Thrush, snakes, bright yellow crabs, twinkling fire flies swarming from tree to tree.....Magic!! ....potey

Nagpur Star said...

Hello Rajesh,
Nice photos of Mahabaleshwar, we here at Nagpur are missing rains, the weather is not hot but, it has been sprinkling of rain drops only rather than wholesome rains. When will Nagpur get heavy rains. In satelite image I dont see any thik cloud cover for next 4-5 days at least. Your a better judge and predictor.
Thanks

I just love Mahabaleshwar in the rains. 17 degrees celcius sounds like a lot of fun. Not sure if I am going to be able to make it this rainy season though. Meanwhile BB1 seems to have ended without providing any fun to Mumbai, hardly any rains in the last week or so. Today was bright and Sunny (and very muggy). Some peoepl have all the Luck!!

Imd's revised sw monsoon forecast is joke. Nothing in it.

rajesh said...

Thanks everyone for your comments..

sridhar, remember, the rush of winds during the movement of BB1 last week was there in S.Konkan, which we were also expecting over Mumbai for a day a least.
