Junaid sir
Originally the 93B was spotted near 10.0 N /85.5 E on 13.10.2011. No attention was given to that. It developed and moved further to cross Arakan Coast. This is also a type of Monsoon depression which is common during SWM period.
I think that both withdrawal of SWM and onset of NEM at TN will take place simultaneously

@Viravanalluran Sir,,@ :)
the depression has weakened now and moved back in the bay of bengal,,,,the strong north east monsoon current on the eastern coast of south east asian peninsula has prevented it from penetrating inland,,,i feel this system will go south and merge with the convection in SE bay wich will brong the ne monsoon to T.N.... So happy tym for ppl of T.N

junaid: As mentioned on the 18th, the fresh system in the Bay arond the 24th will bring in the NEM.
Viravanalluran:Yes, the SWM withdrawal and NEM onset should be simultaneously.
