Do not miss Video at the end of this article

The 06UTC chart from PMD NMCC, shows F-3 getting "organised" and active over Pakistan. The trough, (WD) with the main primary Low is over Pakistan Sindh region, with the Northerly trough in the NE forming clouds over the North Indian regions. 



And Yes. Islamabad and surroundings had good rainfall last 9Thursday) night as mentioned, with 28 mms measured overnight. In the region, Mianwali was higher with 46 mms. Murree (35 kms away from the capital) received an inch of snow.

As expected, system will move into India tonite. Precipitation and cloudiness will increase as the moisture incursion towards the trough moves Eastwards. 
Saturday/Sunday map (below)on vagaries should tally (for rain and clouds).
The Low over Maharshtra is seen in the region also.
The Southern low over Kerala is short lived and may bring light showers in the Lakshdweep Islands region.
So, it seems, events may move as per yesterday's (below)estimate, and no changes in the forecast may be needed.

F-4 is also seen in the West, and the isobars are getting organised, almost to 2 mb difference between them..indicating the low getting strengthened. But, that is still vague, though entering into the Northern regions of the sub continent by the 26th seems certain.

There will be no blog published till Monday. I am away on a Nature and birding trip to Thol Bird Sanctuary, Mehsana, Gujarat next 3 days. 
FB inter actio will also be very much restricted. Vagarians requested to continue their inter action and keep other readers informed thru comments on blog.



In the meantime, I must share this amazing and absolutely superb video taken from the International Space Station. Another Incredible Timelapse from the ISS.
Covers so many aspects of our Earth's weather, and portraits a Space view of a silvery Moon setting into the Earth’s atmosphere, the dazzling Milky Way rising into a brilliant sunrise, airglow of all colors, popping lightning , shimmering aurorae, and incredible views of the stunning space station and our gorgeous planet.
Request all meteorologists and those who love Nature to watch this till the end....mark the lightning starting at 0.45 secs, Milky Way at 1.45, (i am sure you will not be able to leave it half way thru)

I remeber Mehsana, palanpur. We visited this place in 1980s. We had been to Mount Abu (jain temples) - these places are on the way. I guess Mehsana/palanpur receives heavy rain and so is Mt-Abu (2000- 2500mm) inspite of being near Aravalis.

In those days steam engines were present which had its own charm against colours of arid landscape/camels.
