For cities, See Actual v/s Forecast in post below.
Outer townships of Mumbai on mainland can get showers early morning, and late evening due to developing cumulus clouds. Mumbai pressure Friday morning at 1009 mb.(See vagaries Readings).


Though the rainfall in Central and NW India has improved the overall deficit and monsoon position, there are some regions of the country which have not recieved any rains at all.


Kutch Region of Gujarat has received no rains at all, with many stations at 0 mms (Abdasa, Nakhatrana) and the capital Bhuj having measured just 2 mms.
Reports from Kutch state of the ground watre having gone down to "un-reachable" levels, and all the reservoirs are dry.

We can safely say that the SWM has not yet reached the Kutch area of India.

Saurashtra is another such region facing acute shortage of water and rainfall.


Kutch and Saurashtra: : -82%
SAURASHTRA & KUTCH Deficit % as on 22nd August           
AMRELI                                   -73
BHAVNAGAR                         -56
DIU                                           -83
JAMNAGAR                            -84
JUNAGARH                            -84
KUTCH                                    -99             
PORBANDAR                          -91
RAJKOT     
SURENDRANAGAR              -74
SUBDIVISION RAINFALL    -82

 Such are the high Extremes of deficit figures in Gujarat.

Maharashtra Drought Regions are depicted in this re-Organised map:


In Pakistan, Sindh, bordering Kutch, has received negligible rains this Monsoon.
Major cities Rainfall till 22 August:
Karachi: 1 mm, Hyderabad (Sindh): 1 mm, Sukkur: 0 mms, Larkana 0 mms, Jacobabad 3 mms.

For Kutch and Sindh regions, it is very crucial and critical, as the Monsoon withdraws from these regions normally by first week of September.

Heavy rain today afternoon at Greater Noida

Abhijit Modak said...

Today until yet no thunder cells developed on Eastern direction in Badlapur ! Instead Cirrus clouds are seen which having orange & yellow lines like shades !

Rajan Alexander said...

@Pradeep. SSET must be happy. He is silent.

We can presume his enjoying the rain and dreaming how beneficial it would be for his saplings we can presume.

We can expect him in this mood right through October end

Yesterday Badlapur had just one brief spell. In that too some part of town received around 10mm but mine premises measured just 2mm. So overall in past 24hrs, 2mm rain measured here.(i.e from yesterday 8.30am to today 8.30am on 25/08/2012).

Abhijit Modak said...

Today morning was foggy and condensation also noted.

Pradeep said...

Yes Rajan,

No word of him when heavy rain lashes Karnataka.

I would like SSET to comment the S.I.Karnataka rains...the deficient % for SIK has fallen drastically with last two days rains..!

SIK gets rains in october too. SSET SIK is always a better place than Rajasthan & Gujarat.

However NIK is the place to worry.

Light rain in south bangalore

Pavan said...

@mr pradeep, mr rajan as some anony cmtd that he is a pesimst i agree, i thnk that person wil never be happy ever if bangalore is in dulgue, and you can expect his comment only when the rain stops and there is no rain for a week and the axis shifts towards north to maharastra gujrat and rajasthan and places like jaisalmer navimumbai records extremely heavy rains, then he cmts "garbage city towards desertification". I really agree with that anony.
