Severe. cold moving in from the west as temperatures fall in Pakistan.
Karachi saw a low of 8c on Saturday and 8.5c on Sunday. Hyderabad (Sindh)dipped to 7c and in the plains, Nokkundi froze at -5.5c,  Sibbi froze at -4.5c on Sunday morning.
 Could expect the wave to spread into Rajasthan and adjoining regions of Haryana and Delhi...
lows below 5c expected...
Amritsar had the coldest day in the plains on Sunday with the day rising to only 9.4c....


Surat has shown a declining trend last two days, and confirmed with our forecast. Shitij mentions of some clouding on Sunday, and has put up a pic conforming this in fb.

readers mention of some rainfall in N.I. Karnataka and S.Maharashtra. some confirmations show rainfall between 5-10 mms.

though the supporting system has weakened, I expect some more clouding over Pune .

Lucknow reading shown in Imd is 0,7c on Sunday morning. not too convincing to me, and shall confirm on my return...

clouding to increase over Mumbai Monday.

Saturday, December 29, 2012


Surat has dropped to around 30c and low to 14c, and will remain so till 31st as mentioned.
New Delhi South winds started today and expect the day to rise.
chennai has got 22 mms and 10 mms at the two stations, so as per vagaries standard, the average rain till Saturday morning is 16 mms.

A favourable CAPE shows signs of moving along with the trough line, Northwards thru Karnataka and Southern Mah.

On. Friday, the days were cooler on the mainland India, and the Lakshdweep Island city of Amini Divi was highest at 34.8c....coolest day in Asia was at Oymyakon at -48c....just for information..

Friday, December 28, 2012


The UAC mentioned earlier in the South, is set to enter TN on schedule by 28th. From this upper air system, already embedded in the trough, rains along the TN coast can be expected next 2 days from Friday.
 
Chennai can get some showers, with gusty winds from the NE. Friday,Saturday,Sunday, i would expect cumulative of around 25 mms in Chenai.
as I expect the system to now move N/NW. Somewhat along the coast. maybe upto Bengal by the 31st...but this to be observed.

AS this moves, rainfall mov along interior Karnataka and into S. Mah by the 30th.
N.I. Karnataka can get showers on the 29th,and Bangalore a day earlier, as mentioned before.

Mumbai and Pune change from the 29th till 31st, as SW winds dominate and bring in moisture and clouds.
Mumbai gets warm and stuffy, and partly cloudy, last 3/4days of 2012,and we may even see the night temperature rising to 20/21c at Scruz. Unstable atmosphere on the 29/30/21st for Mumbai.

Pune gets partly cloudy with some rain around the 30/31st and nights rising to 15c from the morning of 29th.  Maybe a drizzly New Years Eve !

D-5 is scheduled to move away from the subcontinent by Friday evening. Decrease in fog and rise in day temperatures from Friday for the plains of Punjab and Haryana.
patchy fog in Delhi NCR next 2 days. however, I see no major fall in night temperatures for Delhi NCR in the rear of the WD. Night minimum temperatures will be around 6/7c on Friday and Saturday morning.
From  Saturday, south winds will bring the days upto the 23c  and nights from Sunday morning  
will be around 10/11c  till New Year.

Kolkata recorded a low of 10c on Thursday. The lowest in last few years, though far from the records low.  Northerly winds continue in Kolkata till 30th, that is 2 more days. we see a bit easing of temperatures from 30th, as NW winds dominate.

As estimated, Surat wil see a slight fall in temperatures next few days. days will be dropping by a couple of degrees.
However some clouding around 31st will spoil the good weather.

Plains  of Nepal were cold, with Birendranagar recording a low of 2c and Khatmandu continued to shiver at 1.5c on Thursday morning...with continuing of near zero temperatures next 3 days.

Main Concentration on the North:

D-1 is moving across the Pakistan Sindh region and Northern areas. Most of the Balochistan and Sindh region are cloudy, with the trough bringing in moisture from the SW. No substantial rain reports are in yet.
D-1 will normally move NE now, and on Friday, bring rain/snow to Northern Pakistan, moderate rains to Upper Sindh and Pak Punjab. Cloudy weather for rest of Sindh and Karachi on Friday, with the city seeing rise in night temperatures.

D-1 will effect the Indian regions from Saturday. Initially with rain/snow in Kashmir and HP. Saturday/Sunday will be cloudy, with light rain in Punjab and parts of Haryana.

We cannot expect extreme cold yet, as back to back we may have D-2 coming.
D-1 has no effect in Nepal.

Another WD, D-2, which will arrive in Balochistan on the 12th, will be stronger, and should have its effect in precipitation from Karachi to Northern regions of Pakistan. Moving into India from the 13th/14th, will have good effect in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi NCR. 

Currently, Western coast off shore trough, is pushing in some high clouding into Mah, which on inter acting with a warm front, is likely to bring light rains to Madhya Mah (Pune) and some pockets in N.Konkan and adjoining Gujarat coast and parts of Saurashtra. Clouds will clear off by Sunday.
