Vagaries' Sunday  Weekly  Forecast for  the  week 12th March to  18th  March.








M-2 moves away, and back to back M-3 follows. The W.D enters the sub-continent from Pakistan on Sunday, 11th March. Precipitating rains in the Northern plains and light rains in upper Sindh, it will move into India on Monday.
Monday will be wet in Northern Indian States of Kashmir, H.P. and Utteranchal. Snow would be heavy on the higher ranges and in Gulmarg. On Monday and Tuesday, due to good feeding, we see M-3 sliding into central Nepal. Kathmandu will be getting showers on Tuesday.


Monday will see NW winds lashing the Northern plains of India, Gujarat and central India. Tuesday will be warmer in central India with NE winds.


By Thursday, the 15th of March, two prominent high presuure systems dominate on either side of the Indian Peninsula, one in the Arabian Sea, and another in the Bay. This will initiate the NW winds over Gujarat and Western India with greater gusts. It will be very windy (SW) along the Orissa and W.Bengal coast. Kolkata will be windy on Thursday.
Westerly winds will sweep the Sindh coastline on Thursday and Friday.
