Good to hear thunderstroms over Mumbai/Navi Mumbai. Last year this coincided with Diwali.

By the way is highest rainfall over Maharashtra - Gaganbawda or Sangmeshwar?

Rajesh-all your predictions for rain over Bangalore went wrong -received only 10mm of rain. As per analysis south east interior India - driest place - Major cities Mysore,Coimbator,Bangalore driest citites of India.

East/West Rajisthan managed to get excess 5th year in a row!!!! This means arid/desert zones are shifting elsewhere - southeast peninsular India.

@ Junaid. Yes Badlapur rains were also heavy from 6pm to 8.40pm with 60mm measured.. And from 11.30pm second spell of thunderstorm rains arrived and were heavy for 30mins & now drizzling. This time lightening within clouds no vertical bolt seen & thundering also.

rajesh said...

Rain sliding up the coast North of Mumbai...effect may be felt till Dahanu..
rainfall approaching Thane and Northern suburbs..seems less lightning.

Yesterday's evening Thunderstorm with around 70kmph gusty winds from 6pm to 8.40pm produced 60mm rain..Then second thunderstorm within next 3hrs that is from 11.30pm to 2.30am produced another 26mm rain spell.

So total Badlapur records 86mm rain from yesterday 8.30am to today ending 8.30am on 02-10-2012..

RAJESH SIR AND ABHIJIT I personally feel todays thunderstorms will have the same rain intensity or may be even on the higher side. need to wait and see , as the thunderclouds develop by evening.

COOLNESS AND CLOUD COVER HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH EVENING THUNDER ACIVITY.

DOUBT IS DOUBT N REALITY IS REALITY, HUMIDITY IS ON THE HIGHER SIDE ONCE AGAIN 84% , SO THATS ENOUGH TO TRIGGER THUNDERSTORM IN THE EVENING

@ ANONYMOUS SEEMS TO BE ,THERE IS LOT OF CONFUSION ABOUT EVENING THUNDERSTORM, WELL EVENING THUNDERSTORM WILL TAKE PLACE EVEN IF THERE IS A CLOUD COVER ITS ALL HAPPENING BECAUSE OF THE UAC IS LIKELY TO CREEP UPWARDS TOWARDS MUMBAI , THUS INCREASING THE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY IN MUMBAI AND ALSO IN THE TOWNSHIP AROUND MUMBAI FOR ANOTHER 3 DAYS TILL FRIDAY.

THANKS PREETI SAWANT

@ Junaid. I too very eagar to display Karjat,Matheran, Panvel, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan,Thane & Vasai rain figures but until yet not available on websites !! Daily they gets update by 12 noon on website..
But Today Gandhi Jayanti an holiday, So doubtful to get that figures on website!

@ Rajesh Sir. If possible please provide all above towns Rain figures..

@anonymous
THERE WILL BE NO RAIN OR THUNDERSTORM IN DELHI.

rajesh said...

junaid: yes. i'll put up the figures by noon,if not available on web, i can call them and get the figures...

Readers: Todays morning clouding is the "aftermath" of yesteday's rainfall, something that happens after the passing of a warm front..resultant high to medium clouds remain overnight, and patchy low clouds due to moisture...
Thunderheads are possible today, and can drift over the city...today we will see thunderheads BEHIND cirro stratus clouds, that is straight line clouds somewhere near the top, but at a lower altitude, and these cirro stratus will later become "dotted" against a backdrop of white and pink thunderclouds...i hope i am able to explain properly..

vagaries recorded 51 mms.

NT said...

TOI reports of lightning related deaths in Bhiwandi yesterday evening. By the way the airport too was shut for 20 odd minutes between 7pm and 8 pm giving an idea of the storm intentsity.

By the way the article also talks about the heat index measured by IIT Powai, being at 59.6 yesterday and it being the highest since 2006. Any idea where to look up the heat index? The NOAA Airport data shows the heat index but it showed 39 degrees yesterday so the one being mentioned by IIT looks to be a different scale.

@ Anonymous. Please put your name also while commenting on blog as there are many anonys.. so it makes difficult to identify exact one for conversation.. And please do not call me an SIR as I am also an weather learner like you only, under the guidance of Rajesh SIR.

And now about forecasting
Eastern Nepal bordering Sikkim will have more activity of Rain or Thunderstorm & Central Nepal may develop some thunder activity ! So chances of thunderstorm for Katmandu cannot be ruled out !!

Yes preeti, I too have noticed some thundery development in far NE of Badlapur..So patches of thunderstorm are generating in patches of Nashik, Pune & Raigad districts at moment..

Have to wait & watch its moment and whether they are forming or gathering the strength by evening time !

With monsoon axis as usual stuck over Maharashtra 2 UACs (bringing bountiful rains - thunderstroms) - Last year Pune received 300mm in october - totalling 1000mm!!!
Bad for South India - no rain, no thunders - Bangalore hot and sunny - gearing for BANDH - cauvery water sharing. Monsoon axis again failing over south India. Fate of NEM???

Anonymous said...

@ Abhijit, I also feel the same, these thunderclouds are just preparing themselves for the evening show . grt ,we will wait and watch. its progress.
