BB-9 is located (10.30pm Tuesday) at 19.4N and 90E.That means, it has moved NE from our last positioning on vagaries.Max winds are at 20 knts, at pressure is 1004 mb. So, intensity is almost same and maintained. Expected to move NE, and bring rainfall to gangatic Bengal and Bangladesh.

UAC over East Arabian Sea off Kearala coast persisits at same strength.Precipitation expected in Kerala next 2/3 days.
Another system is expected to form in the South Bay around 24th October. There is one possibility of system tracking due west into the Arabian Sea, and will merge with current UAC and emerge as a low in the Arabian Sea around Divali.
Another possibility I do Not rule out is the UAC strengthening into a low on its own around the 21st/22nd of this month.

Thunderstorms were reported today from Amreli, Panelli and Upleta regions of Saurashtra. Very gusty winds have uprooted a number of trees and broken down power lines. Our Yesterday's report confirmed 9 cms rain in Amreli.

Bangalore Special:

Bangalore is nicknamed the Garden City and was once called a pensioner's paradise.

Bangalore experiences a tropical savanna climate with distinct wet and dry seasons. Due to its high elevation, 920 mts or 3018 ft above sea level, Bangalore usually enjoys a more moderate climate throughout the year, although occasional heat waves can make things very uncomfortable in the summer.

Bangalore receives rainfall from both the northeast and the southwest monsoons and the wettest months are September (195 mms), October (180 mms). November receives 65 mms.


The daily rainfall graph shows the rains this year from the SWM have been average for Bangalore. A daily rain histogram shows the figures.

October average normal rainfall is 180 mms. Bangalore Rain fall from 1st October to 18th October 2011: 102 mms (16 mms)


The average temperature range for Bangalore from mid-July to mid October (previous 3 months) this year has been above normal by 0.5c. Diagram shows the daily temperatures.

Expecting little rain this week for Bangalore. Maybe a light shower. Rainfall upto 5 mms.

Rajesh -surprised by your comments. Bangalore is now garbage, dry, barren city. No water, no power, no rain. All few trees chopped, no efforts are made for tree plantation. Few of lakes are drained- no rain. IT city has no concern for environment. Government is so corrupt -promotes mining and falling of trees. BDA,BBMP,BMRCL are bunch of corrupt species. In fact daily there are protest by few environmentalist against government. State of Bangalore what you mentioned was in 1970's.
Since last 10 years myself have stayed no improvement in infrastructure - temperatures touch almost 40degress in summer.


Rajesh- if you donnot believe me, just visit and recollect my comments. Just compare with Navi Mumbai - Kharghar - scotlant, Panvel, Belapur, Vashi - iconic palm beach road, - efforts made by CIDCO - is like master piece for entire country to learn. Infact weatherman from Bangalore can justify if they are true nature lovers like us.


Myself being south india always look with equality but I feel Maharashtra is better.

I used to ,and remember This garden city as very beautiful and superbly clean.Till very recently,buildings more than 4 floors were not allowed.
But,figures and diagram shown in vagaries shows good rains this year,at least normal.
And, the avg. temperature a wee bit higher than normal, by .49c.

Good Rajesh - Bangalore has largest number of vehicles in India- in fact 10 times than Mumbai!!!! contributing to worst pollution. Metro took 10years (still digging) chopped all trees - in a mess. Government itself is corrupt. Ironical part is rich city - all IT,MNC have no concern for environment.

It is a tragedic case of how man himself is responsible for destructing environment. Infact every year temperature raises by 1degree in Bangalore and it is evident.
